Call to Artists | Nooks & Crannies Outdoor Art Festival

Date: Mar 11, 2020

Deadline: Apr 24, 2020 - 11:45 pm

Okotoks Culture seeks proposals from artists to create temporary public art installations in the forgotten nooks and crannies in downtown Okotoks, Alberta for our 2nd annual edition of Nooks and Crannies art festival. 
 
Nooks & Crannies brings in artists who create temporary site-specific installations that animate the forgotten nooks and crannies of downtown Okotoks. Individual artists and/or teams must use recycled products to create installations that raise environmental awareness, animate spaces, and entertain audiences. Environmental awareness and sustainability are key themes in this festival, and the materials used in all installations will be recyclable items from the Okotoks Eco Centre or provided by the artist.
 
This year, presented alongside Buskersfest, the 2nd annual Nooks & Crannies Festival opens June 27, 2020 with art installations available for viewing through to the Taste of Okotoks, which happens on July 18, 2020.
 
Nooks & Crannies accepts submissions from only Alberta artists, and there are four different categories artists may apply within:

  • Professional
  • Accomplished
  • Youth
  • Hobbyist

 Selected artists will be paid an installation fee, based on the category they fall within.
 
Deadline to submit: April 24, 2020
 
Apply here.

The inaugural Nooks & Crannies Festival in 2019 featured 10 artists from Okotoks and Calgary who used re-purposed materials to liven up eight hidden corners of downtown, in partnership with 12 Okotoks businesses.
