Site 3 coLaboratory, 718r Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON, Canada.

How To Apply:
Send the following to info@site3.ca by 11:59pm on July 30th, 2013:

As your cover letter, introduce yourself and provide a no-more-than 750-word essay on why you want to come work with us. We need to know who you are and what you’ve done and why you think we’re a good fit for you.

Attached to e-mail, submit a project proposal totalling no more than 1000 words and three supporting images that tells us how you intend to use the shop space and the shop equipment.

What You Get:
- Six months access to Site 3 coLaboratory, with key.
- Free access to any normal member workshops hosted in the period, ie: basic equipment training classes. Example: Laser.
- Funding for liquor licence and normal liquor, portable toilet, etc. for display show at end.

What We Need You To Supply:
- You will organize a full display of work produced for a show-off event at the end of your residency; a lightning talks round, a DJ night, something to display the work you’ve done.
- A report of what you’ve done for our website, so we can promote you. And us, of course.
- You should be prepared to be a major part of the Site 3 promotional team, which means you say nice things about us and our facility when asked by your peers, and direct people to us who you think would get along with us.

Who Qualifies:
We are looking for artists and artisans with a view to the future. Preference will be given to those not previously affiliated with Site 3, although of course we would like to see a broad range of response. Preference will be given to interdisciplinary project proposals which incorporate a high level of technical accomplishment with some element which could not be easily achieved without the support of Site 3. We are open to proposals from emerging artists (“The Youngs”), but emerged artists (“The Olds”) are also specifically welcome to apply. There will be no preference given to one material technique over another.
We want to see some amazing things. We think you have some idea of what you want to make. Come make it with us.

Hot Metal

Paul and Lauren are members who make metal things..The quest for a Site 3 logo belt buckle is ongoing, but their equipment is definitely getting sexier!

Molten aluminum in a graphite crucible :) Heating coils are 20 gauge nichrome wire connected to 120V AC. Insulation is ceramic fiber blanket in a steel bucket. Consumes around 1200W and requires minimal supervision.

More open house goodness

Fun with lightning, video auditions, an intro to Arduino course, oyster shucking, and popping corn with nichrome.

Vacuforming Heads!

Derek's 3D printed head with Dana's vacuformed mask!

Last night at the open house: Dana’s home-made vacuforming efforts resulted in a bunch of people leaving the shop with a mask of Dana.

“I think Halloween this year is going to be a blast!” – Dana

” I would like to order a stormtrooper costume please. ” – Paul Walker
