Come Up to My Room - Call for Interest

The Gladstone Hotel seeks "Expressions of Interest" for innovative, cutting-edge, contemporary design and installation-based projects for The Gladstone Hotel's annual alternative design event, Come Up To My Room. The seventh installment of CUTMR will take place from January 21st to 24th, 2010 at the historic Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto. Site-specific work will be mounted in the rooms and public spaces on the 2nd and main floors of The Gladstone.

Ideal candidates for juried consideration are makers who focus their practice in the areas of experimental, inter-disciplinary, self-taught, hand-made/craft-based work in any creative medium. We are looking for practitioners and emerging designers who approach their discipline with a radical personal vision, and who use design to converse, connect, collaborate and construct delight in the unexpected.
