Edmonton | Artist in Residence – Request for Proposals: City of Edmonton Waste Management Centre

edmonton arts councilThe Edmonton Arts Council is inviting artists who live in Edmonton to submit a proposal to become the first artist-in-residence hosted by the City of Edmonton Waste Management Centre. The selected artist will ideally commence residency in the late fall of 2017, for an anticipated six-month period (terms negotiable/flexible).

The Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC) is a unique collection of advanced waste processing and research facilities where municipal waste is transformed into useful resources. The Centre is 233 hectares in size; the Composting Facility alone occupies space equivalent to almost five football fields. On average, 4,500 trucks bearing 9,800 tonnes of material cross the scale every week. Over 15,000 students, teachers and adults tour the Centre each year.

The artist-in-residence will develop a body of artistic work while interacting with the staff and tour groups in and around the EWMC site. The artist will ideally reflect their residency experience through their work, and potentially mentor the artistic expression of interested staff and community.

Submission deadline: October 6, 2017

Edmonton | Call for Applications : Borealis Gallery

Legislative Assembly of AlbertaThe Spanish Flu in Alberta

In 1918, a mysterious illness swept the globe. It struck erratically and swiftly, seeming to target otherwise healthy young adults. Its victims could be well in the morning and dead by nightfall. The Spanish Flu, as the pandemic came to be known, was indiscriminate and it was ruthless: estimates place the worldwide mortality rate between 20 and 100 million people. Roughly one in six Canadians perished. More than 4,000 Albertans, almost 10% of the province’s population, died within four months. What happened? And what did it mean for the young province of Alberta?

100 years later, the Borealis Gallery at the Legislative Assembly Office is curating an exhibition to examine the realities, conditions, and legacies of the Spanish Flu in Alberta. Opening in Edmonton October 2018, the exhibition will explore how individuals, communities, and the province were affected by this international pandemic.

We are interested in past work, current work, and in artwork created specifically to align with the themes of this exhibition. As part of our commitment to encourage and foster a vibrant Alberta arts scene, exhibiting artists will be compensated for their contributions. We use CARFAC schedules as a guide when determining compensation rates.

Application Deadline: November 1, 2017, 4:00 pm MST
