Brief Description

The City of St. Albert’s Art in Public Places program is pleased to announce an Invitation to Tender for an artist-led, community-engaged temporary public artwork to be created for the 2018 Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival. The City seeks submissions from experienced artists or artist teams residing in Canada. Building bridges between art, culture and education, the Children’s Festival is a buzzing, colourful, six-day arts and culture experience held annually in May/June in St. Albert. It is nationally recognized as the region’s signature cultural event and is visited by over 50,000 children, youth and adults from Alberta, BC, and Saskatchewan. The public artwork at the Festival plays an important role by contributing an experiential and thought-provoking visual art experience for community members and visitors.
