PRINCE GEORGE, BC: The Northern Indigenous Arts Council is working with Diversified Transportation Ltd to select artwork from Indigenous artists affiliated with regional communities serviced by BC Bus North. The artwork should express and advance the connections between the Northern Regions Indigenous communities. This invitation includes artists working in any artform that can translate to large scale digital images.
“NIAC sees this as an opportunity for local indigenous artists to bring their artwork to the people of the North without them leaving their communities”. It is not often that artists can apply their work to an outdoor travelling “venue” that covers such a big geographic area. With so many galleries closed, this is the right time to undertake this initiative. Diane Levesque, President, Northern Indigenous Arts Council.
The artwork will adorn the four buses providing service between Prince Rupert and Prince George, Prince George and Valemount, Prince George and Fort St. John, and Fort Nelson and Dawson Creek.
Artists are invited to submit to the Northern Indigenous Arts Council by 5:00 pm, May 7th, 2021. Submissions of original designs/concepts will be accepted from Indigenous artists residing in Northern BC communities. From these submissions a committee will choose artists whose work will be selected for refinement, fabrication and application.
