Vancity Call for Artists!


2016-artcall-bannerDear artists and artist teams,

Vancity has just launched a call to visual artists for a site-specific art commission for the New Westminster community branch, located at 511 Sixth Street, New Westminster, BC.

The project —to re-envision prosperity as something we can only achieve if we’re surrounded by and connected to a vibrant and diverse community.  Vancity’s values-based banking model is grounded in the local economy because they believe you only truly prosper when you’re connected to a healthy community.

Vancity is remodeling their New Westminster community branch (branch 61) 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. Through this art call, Vancity will select one artist or artist team to create one art commission.

An artist information session will be held on:

  • Wednesday, July 5, 2017 at 7 pm
  • Location: The New Westminster community branch, 511 Sixth Street,  New Westminster, BC
  • Artists must visit and register to RSVP and attend this information session. If you register you will receive a personal response within 48 hours.


All final submissions must be completed online at

  • The deadline for submissions is 11:59 am on Monday, August 28, 2017.
