The City of Calgary is in search of art by artists with strong ties to northeast Calgary to be featured in outdoor mini-galleries at 10 community centers throughout 2023. This exhibition will celebrate the diversity of art forms, people, and cultures represented in northeast Calgary.
All art mediums are welcome. If you do small-scale visual arts, this space will lend itself nicely to your craft. However, maybe you’re a poet, a dancer, an actor, a filmmaker, a textile artist, or a large-scale sculptor or painter. We encourage you to think creatively about how your art may be showcased in these spaces and present us with your ideas.
Submissions will be accepted from professional, emerging, and recreational artists in all disciplines for three rounds of applications. Artworks will be selected by curators who will plan mini-gallery exhibits around themes gathered from conversations with northeast community members.
Artists will be paid $960 for exhibiting their work in the mini-galleries for a four-month period.
A total of 30 local artists will be chosen to exhibit their work in 2023.
