Artists, organizations/businesses encouraged to apply
The City of Prince Albert is pleased to announce the second call for applications to the Public Art Partnership Stimulus Fund. This program provides up to $2,000 in matching funds to support one to two public art partnership projects per year. Application deadlines are March 1 and October 1 (if the funds are not expended in the first deadline).
The program is aimed at supporting a professional artist to create a piece of art that is accessible to everyone in a public location. Examples include murals, participatory community public art projects and public works type art such as power boxes, park entrances, signage, etc. Project budgets submitted must include appropriate compensation for artists using CARFAC (Canadian Artist Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens) rates.
Applicants for the fund must be a professional arts organization, non-profit organization, municipality or school division or private business located in the City of Prince Albert. Each organization must partner with a professional artist to qualify.
The Public Art Stimulus Partnership Fund is an initiative from the Public Art Policy which was adopted to provide a standardized and transparent process for the acquisition, placement, maintenance, relocation and de-accession of Public Art and provide a sustainable funding model for the management of Public Art in Prince Albert.
