Call to Curator/Consultants - Jasper Avenue Streetscape Public Art Project

Professional curators residing in Western Canada are invited to submit their qualifications for the Jasper Avenue Streetscape. This opportunity is held in accordance with the City of Edmonton policy "Percent for Art to Provide and Encourage Art in Public Areas" (C458C).

The public art curator will work collaboratively with the Jasper Avenue project team and community stakeholders such as local businesses, residents, and community organizations. The curator will then devise a methodology whereby artists can be embedded in a meaningful and appropriate way, and that identifies opportunities for public art in response to the area's spaces, sites, and people.

The resulting high-level strategy will govern development of the Jasper Avenue Public Art Program and all aspects of implementation. The creation of a fluid working methodology with input from the various teams and stakeholders involved, will allow for a natural evolution of the work as the Jasper Avenue Streetscape is implemented through its various phases.

Budget:

$20,000.00 CAD (maximum, all inclusive)

Deadline for Submissions:
4:30 pm MST on Friday, January 19, 2018 Engagement
