Acetylcholine causes the production of inositol triphosphate IP3 , an important second messenger in many hormone signal transduction pathways. Whatever the source, endothelial cells or cavernous nerve, NO diffuses across the muscle cell membrane and binds to guanylyl cyclase. Guanylyl cyclase buy viagra online sales online viagra sale catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic GMP from GTP.

From gentle waves and gushing torrents to interminable droughts, the ever-changing tides of artistic inspiration are unlike any other. Inevitably, the successful artist must be primed to continuously cultivate and grow their creative practices, take risks, rejuvenate themselves, and be born anew. As Ezra Pound believed, “The artist is always beginning.”
Inflow / Afflux is envisioned as a safe harbour where revitalizing tides of new creative inspiration may be sourced, nurtured, pooled, and given life-enriching form. Inflow / Afflux invites creative visionaries from diverse surroundings to tap into, and share with the public, where the meandering energies of their vital tributaries originate and flow.
Inflow / Affllux is a 24-month creative residency program with a mandate to strengthen the capacity and profile of emerging and mid-career professional artists, curators, educators, and producers from across diverse regions, cultures, and artistic disciplines in Ontario.
Throughout the residency, Associates will have the opportunity to grow their creative practices while collaborating with other participants and receiving sustained artistic and administrative support in not-for-profit production, outreach, fundraising, marketing, financial management, governance, strategic planning, and more.
With access to the shared not-for-profit structures, resources and learning provided by ArtsPond / Étang d’Arts, Associates will bring one or more creative projects to fruition while developing the skills and support necessary to secure a successful, life-long career in the arts.
Both small and large-scale projects leading toward public events of varying complexity are welcome. Associates may choose to share their completed project(s) as standalone events in their community, or as a part of Infuse / Infuser, a multi-arts festival to be presented in Toronto by ArtsPond / Étang d’Arts.
Individuals and collectives committed to producing vital work on a non-profit basis are eligible to apply, including Women, New Generation, New Canadian, Rural/Remote, Francophone, Indigenous, Disability, LGBTQ+, and other diverse groups. Artists with a devotion to investigating unexpected creative hybrids and fluid collaborations are encouraged to apply. Professionals working in traditional, modern, contemporary, multidisciplinary, integrated, and community-engaged practices are eligible to apply. Eligible artistic practices include the visual, performing, media, literary, community arts, craft, and other new and emerging forms.
