Read the full call below:
All of Us Community Project
CB Nuit is seeking an artist(s) to lead our annual Community Project for 2021. We welcome artists who want to share their art practice and culture with our community through a collective project.
History of "All of Us"
The Community Project has traditionally reflected the community of Corner Brook.
In 2018, we celebrated the new recycling bi-laws with a string of self portraits made from repurposed items. “All of Us'' was strung along the West street light posts.
In 2019, we addressed Climate Awareness with biodegradable paper lanterns painted with food dyes and supported by compelling recorded messages from young student artists advising about Climate change. “Light for All of Us'' was installed in an indoor location on West St.
In 2020 we invited our community to create wearable art within the safety of their bubbles and be included in a final digital presentation “All of Us EveryWEAR”.
We invite you to consider the current climate of Corner Brook to inspire the idea for your project.
Things to keep in mind while writing a project proposal:
Project is designed to encourage participants to express their individual creativity.
Project needs to be suitable for all ages.
Keep sustainability in mind when choosing materials and processes
Artists are welcome to submit more than one project idea
Pending local municipal health guidelines, the artist(s) will communicate with schools to organize class visits, involve local community groups and lead a creative session(s) that will be open to the public.
The final project will be presented/installed at the CB Nuit festival.
