Vancity Call to Artists! Fraser St Community Branch



For their second call to artists this year, Vancity is remodeling their Fraser Street community branch (branch 7) to better reflect the way they do business. This project includes an art call designed to engage the local art community as an integral part of their member’s branch experience.

Vancity is now accepting applications of expressions of interest (EOI) from artists or artist teams who live or work in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley to design and integrate a site-specific art commission.

They are seeking applications for artwork that reflect and interpret, in a celebratory way, the rich and diverse culture of the local community. Content / themes must align to Vancity’s vision and values, and can be social, economic, historical, environmental or a combination.
