StreetARToronto Underpass Program (StART UP)

StART's Underpass Program, StART UP, provides opportunities for artists to create works of art that contribute to the program mandate to make our City's underpasses safe, walkable, and beautiful.  

StART UP aims to transform up to five underpasses per year. The City of Toronto invites artists to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to participate in StART UP.

Qualified artists will be selected to be part of the StART UP Artist Roster, and the commission for each underpass will be awarded following a two-stage selection process. Artists are eligible to receive one StART UP commission per calendar year.

For more information and to apply to be on the StART UP Artist Roster, download the application form.

Submission Deadline:  The 2016 application period is closed. Applications will re-open in early 2017, with a 2017 deadline of March 6, 2017, 4:30pm
