Call for Artists in Communities 2023 – Vancouver Park Board
The Artists in Communities Program (AIC) is based on principles of community cultural development – building community by making art together. It supports artists working in community contexts and encourages a wide variety of interactions between artist and community members. AIC looks for a lasting physical and/or social legacy from projects and supports community-engaged arts practices that see artists collaborate with community members who may not see themselves as artists, working together over an extended period of time as creators, producers, performers and active audiences.
Artist Fee: $13,000.00
Materials Expenses: $2,500.00
(the artist fee is based on approx. 300 hours, which includes: research & development, maintaining online project documentation and delivering the project proposal and final report)

Fieldhouse Activation Program for community engagement
The Vancouver Park Board’s Fieldhouse Activation Program provides long-term access to fieldhouses in parks across the city for artists and organizations to create a home-base for projects and activities that engage the community. By repurposing underused fieldhouses into small community spaces, this program aims to:
• Animate our neighbourhoods with place-based activities focused on one or more of our priority themes: Arts & Culture, Environment Stewardship and Local Food.
• Host projects, workshops, performances, exhibitions and activations in locations where people already gather
• Provide long-term, rent-free work and presentation space in exchange for community engaged projects and activities
As part of this program, the Park Board provides space for a three year term (January 2022 to December 2024) with an option to reapply for a three-year term following.
We strongly encourage you to visit fieldhouses, attend fieldhouse events, and chat with local artists, local food experts and garden stewards, about their fieldhouse experiences before you apply.
