Vancity Call to Artists for the North Road community branch (16)


Vancity is now accepting applications of expressions of interest (EOI) from artists or artist teams who live or work in Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Squamish Valley, to design and integrate a site-specific art commission for the soon to be relocated North Road community branch 16.

We’re seeking applications for artwork for a curved wall that reflect and interpret, in a celebratory way, the rich and diverse culture of the local community of the North Road branch. Content / themes must align to Vancity’s vision and values, and can be social, economic, historical, environmental or a combination. Preference will be given to submissions that aim to incorporate up-cycled, recycled, sustainably sourced, salvaged, found and/or other natural media.
