Submissions Must Be Sent to Region by March 4th. Learn More Below

A Call-Out for Submissions from Niagara, Ontario’s Regional Government

Posted February 18th, 2022 on Niagara At Large

Niagara is looking to commission an outdoor public art sculpture that celebrates Indigenous history and cultures.

The sculpture is to be installed within the newly constructed International Plaza at Niagara Regional Headquarters and has the opportunity for national exposure during the upcoming 2022 Canada Summer Games event this summer.

The sculpture would stand at the recently constructed International Plaza at Niagara Regional Headquarters where, in this photo taken in the spring of  2021, flags for the Regional Government and those for all 12 local municipalities in Niagara were lowered to half mast after news broke that the bodies of 215 Indigenous  children were  discovered in unmarked graves on the property of a former residential school in British Columbia.

Niagara Region has issued an Expression of Interest as an invitation to all emerging, mid-career and established Indigenous artists (18 years of age and older) of Indigenous ancestry.

Niagara region is full of the rich history of Indigenous peoples who have lived in the area for thousands of years, and is currently home to many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples from across  Turtle Island.

The public art feature will be located in a prominent location at the northwest corner of the International Plaza, corner of Sir Isaac Brock Way (Regional Road 71) and Merrittville Highway (Regional Road 50), across the street from the Games Park and Brock University.

Artists are asked to submit one final design for an outdoor sculptural installation, which must be installed by June 30, 2022.

Interested parties must send submissions by 2 p.m. on March 4, 2022 through the project webpage <https://www.niagararegion.ca/culture-and-environment/eoi-indigenous-sculpture.aspx?topic=1>.

A detailed list of sculpture requirements can also be found on the link – <https://www.niagararegion.ca/culture-and-environment/eoi-indigenous-sculpture.aspx?topic=1>.
