WHAT IS ECO-ART WALK?

We are inviting citizen artists, or groups of citizen artists, to create Eco-Art installations for the City of Vancouver’s Green Streets gardens! Artworks will be installed in roundabouts, curbsides, and boulevard gardens in the Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood. We have 20 gardens available and want to fill each of them with Eco-Art!

Artists and Artist-Groups will be given a $100 Honorarium. We encourage you to use recycled materials, natural materials, and found objects in your sculpture. Installations must maintain visibility for cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers, as well as be structurally sound and able to withstand the elements (including potential public interaction) for 4-6 weeks. Artists are responsible for building, maintenance, and installation.

The Community Arts Council of Vancouver will provide reference resources (including detailed Green Streets guidelines) for citizen artists; guidance and mentorship for designs; information on ethical wildcrafting and harvesting natural materials; a map of the completed installations for walking tours; and guided tours on foot and bicycle of the completed installations in June and July.

By linking this to place-based community arts practice, and the eco-art approach, The Community Arts Council of Vancouver hopes to seed-bomb and fertilize new relationships, creative expressions, and civic conversations where art meets the environment.
