The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC), on behalf of the City of Edmonton, is seeking an Indigenous artist or artist team to create an artwork to be installed in a pocket park as part of the Metro Line LRT expansion at NAIT.

The pocket park has been identified as an ideal space to showcase the work of an Indigenous artist or artist team. The project aligns with the City of Edmonton’s Indigenous Framework Commitment # 3: ​“To identify and implement ways to make City spaces and buildings welcoming and safe for Indigenous Peoples and ensure they can see themselves reflected in the City’s spaces and places.”

Working with the project team, the selected artist has the opportunity to create an artwork as well as have input in the overall design of the pocket park in which the artwork will be installed. Mediums could include, but are not limited to, sculpture, sculptural installation, or land art.

Submissions will be accepted through the EAC’s online portal, SmartSimple https://eac.smartsimple.ca/s_Login.jsp
