Brief Description

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. You do not have to be a resident of Vancouver, but you must have significant experience with and relationship to this place.
