Our Public Art Program invites artists to submit their ideas for public art projects in any scale, scope, and medium.
We are looking for artists to propose meaningful pieces for public spaces in the city that reflect the complexities of place and publics, engage cultural practices, and provoke critical dialogue.
The artist-initiated call is open to all artists, working individually or in collaboration. Artists and cultural practitioners of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations are especially encouraged to apply.
