We are currently booking an Eco-Arts Salon. This presentation will showcase your work to the public with opportunities for feedback, networking and community participation.
The objective of the Eco-Arts 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?” Each presenter, professional or project-based, is also asked to facilitate a hands-on component as part of their salon which could involve group writing, art-making, musical components, etc.
This event will be held on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at the Roundhouse Community Art and Recreation Centre from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in conjunction with Cultivate.
If your art practice is informed by your concerns for the environment we’d like to see your work at our salon. The presenting artist or group will receive a $200 honorarium for the 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. Artists engaged with film, digital work, music and culinary arts are invited to apply.
- It must engage with community (whether geographical, interest-based or through an intact group or organization) in its design, creation and/or production.
- 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.
Please submit your proposal for an Eco-Arts Salon presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org
no later than Friday, September 27, 2013. The selected artist will be advised by email on Wednesday, October 2, 2013.
