  • Curatorial projects
  • Offsite projects and/or experimental exhibition formats

All proposals should be for new work that has not been presented elsewhere. Projects will be selected based on their quality and relevance to the communities Enjoy serves, as well as how they fit within the overall balance of the gallery’s programming. You can read more about Enjoy’s mission and vision at here.
