The City of Vancouver Public Art Program invites artists to submit their ideas for public art projects. Artists can propose artworks in any scale, scope, and medium, including the performative and temporary. We are most interested in proposals that reflect on the complexities of place and publics, engage cultural practices, and engender critical dialogue. This is an invitation for artists to experiment and propose meaningful gestures within public space today. Initial applications require only a short statement of interest, resume and images of previous work.
The Artist-Initiated Call is open to all artists, working individually or in collaboration. Artists and cultural practitioners of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations are especially encouraged to apply.
For more information, including details on artist information sessions on April 25 and May 7, click here.
Submission Deadline: Thursday, June 6, 2019, 3 p.m. PDT
