The Community Arts Council of Vancouver is currently booking a special Eco Art Salon for the end of April 2012 to coincide with BC Arts & Culture week. This evening presentation will feature a panel of emerging eco-artists who will present their work to the public. Here is your chance to showcase your artwork with opportunities for feedback, networking and community participation.
The objective of our monthly Eco Art Salons is to create a space for stimulating dialogue around questions such as “What does it mean to be an environmental artist?” and “What is the potential for community engaged environmental art in Vancouver?” This event will be held on April 25, 2012 from 7-9 pm.
If your art practice engages with ideas of community-building and centers on the environment, we’d like to see your work at our Salon. We will be selecting 5 artists or collaborative groups to feature in this special event. Artists will receive a $100 honorarium for their presentation.
- Your artistic practice might include performative work (e.g. dramatic, dance), sound-art, time-based art (e.g. film), sculptural works, 2D artwork or literary art (e.g. story-telling, spoken word). You might have a particular project within your practice that you would like to feature.
- It must engage with community in its production or in its reception.
- It should be something that can be defined as “Eco-Art”. This could include low impact (e.g. reuses materials, is ephemeral, is site-specific) works, or might centre on environmental awareness, education or causes.
Submit your suggestions for an Eco Arts Salon to email@example.com no later than Sunday, April 8th, 2012. This should include a short description of how your work can be defined as ‘eco art’ and how it engages with community. Please include a website or up to six images of relevant work (jpg files).
