The City of Calgary Public Art Program in collaboration with Indefinite Arts Centre are seeking a professional artist with established community engagement experience to lead a six-week workshop series resulting in the development and execution of temporary utility box artworks in a select community.

The 2018 Mentorship program will work with artists participating in the Indefinite Arts Centre.

This mentorship program will support the mission of Indefinite Arts Centre to provide artistic training, creation and exhibition opportunities for people, of all ages – with developmental disabilities, and shares the power of their creativity by advocating for their inclusion in the contemporary arts.

The Public Art Program has a vision to build a diverse collection and encourages artists working in suitable media to apply. Safety, durability, low maintenance, vandalism resistance and exposure to sunlight and variations in temperature and weather conditions must be considered due to the public nature and usage of the boxes. Artists should have experience working in public spaces, be able to work within the existing parameters of the site, be able to work collaboratively and have a history of working within set budgets. Previous experience with successful community engagement is required.

The all-inclusive lead artist budget for this project is $20,000.
