Canadian City Seeks Artist-In-Residence for Waste Management Centre

The Edmonton Arts Council (Canada) is accepting proposals from local artists to become the first artist-in-residence at the city’s waste management centre this fall.

The Edmonton Arts Council (Canada) not-for-profit organization is accepting proposals from local artists to become the first artist-in-residence at the city’s waste management centre this fall.

The selected artist-in-residence is expected to commit to regular full-time working hours during the operating hours of the facility for six months. During that time, they will have access to recycling materials, mentoring, offices, industrial space and classrooms in order to produce and present at least one public showing of work.

Global News has more details:

It’s said that art is in the eye of the beholder, and the City of Edmonton is hoping one man’s trash will become another man’s treasure — or at least, inspiration.

The Edmonton Arts Council not-for-profit organization is inviting local artists to submit a proposal to become the first artist-in-residence hosted by the city’s waste management centre.

The request for proposals says the artist will “ideally reflect their residency experience through their work, and will have access to recycled materials from the facility, as well as potentially mentoring the artistic expression of interested staff and community.”
