Vancouver Pride Society would like to apply for a Public Art Grant from the City of Vancouver to work with an artist to create an interactive public art piece for our upcoming Pride Season.

Grant funding of up to $20,000 per project covers design/artist fees, materials, engineering fees, permit fees, maintenance, promotion and launch of said project. We would like the art piece to reflect the values of Vancouver Pride Society and inspire inclusion, celebration of diversity and community connection.

If you have an idea for an interactive project, are available to work with VPS on the project from March 2018, and deliver on creation of the project by mid July, please find further info and complete the proposal submission form. Artists will be paid according to industry standards.

Public art projects can include, but are not limited to:

· Free-standing sculpture or other site installations

· Two-dimensional work (murals, mosaics)

· Video and LED artworks (digital projections and lighting)

· Artist-designed, exceptional site elements (pavement patterns, walls, gateways, place markers); or

· Unique functional art (benches, bike racks, light standards or other streetscape amenities).

Submissions will be assessed on a rolling basis with an anticipated notification date of October 20th.
