cSPACE invites artists who are resident to Alberta to submit qualifications to create semi-integrated public artwork(s) that contribute to the transformation of historic King Edward School into a 21st century Arts Hub and Incubator.
As a facility designed to support diverse communities of creatives, this is a unique opportunity for artist(s) from emerging through established career levels to be involved in an impactful, multi-site public art project. cSPACE connects community and placemaking in new ways and we are seeking partnerships with artists who have the creativity and capacity to design and execute bold public artwork(s).
This call to artists includes a two-stage selection process. Up to three artists will be shortlisted for each location to submit conceptual designs from which the chosen artist(s) will be selected by the cSPACE public art jury. Shortlisted artists will participate in site visits and further research prior to preparing full proposals.
