Call to Artists

Amnesty International : Pacific Regional Office
Vancouver, Canada
Project Description

Human rights violations are occurring worldwide. However, as awareness and attention are brought to these issues an encouraging sense of hope is born : hope that we can bring an end to these unthinkable acts against humanity. To help raise public awareness about human rights issues, the Pacific Regional Office of Amnesty International Canada has developed the [email protected] Project : an inspiring series of human rights paintings for exhibition throughout the Vancouver area and for auction as a fundraiser for Amnesty International.

The Cause

In 2008, the world celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This is a momentous year for Amnesty International, as the organization envisions a world in which every person enjoys ALL human rights as enshrined in the Declaration. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights consists of 30 Articles, each outlining the fundamental human rights to which every person is entitled. Through this project we hope to bring the UDHR to life by using the universal language of the image.

The Plan

The goal is to work with artists to create artworks that depict each of the 30 human rights articles in the UDHR. These artworks will be displayed during the annual Amnesty International Film Festival in Vancouver, November 13-16, and then moved to 30 secure but publicly visible locations throughout the city for two weeks, and then brought back together for a final multi-day exhibition and auction, on or near December 10, the anniversary of the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the UDHR.

Invitation to artists

We invite visual artists to propose to complete an artwork depicting an article in the UDHR. This invitation is open to artists working in any media that may be created and/or displayed on a 30x30 inch canvas. No three-dimensional art can be considered for this exhibition and auction. Please submit a proposal indicating which article you would like to illustrate, and at least one second choice if possible. Please indicate how you intend to treat the subject of the article, keeping in mind that the exhibition is a celebration of the UDHR and preference will be given to artists who propose positive images. Please also include photographs of your work or a web address if your work may be viewed online.

Deadline for proposals has been extended to June 30, 2008 ; artists will be informed of selection committee decisions before the end of July and will be asked to sign a letter of commitment regarding the completion (by October 15), exhibition, and sale of the artwork. Artists will have the option of retaining up to 40 percent of the auction sale price as partial compensation for materials and time. A minimum bid amount for each work will be set in discussion with each artist.
All rights will remain with the artist except permission for Amnesty International Canada to produce a limited-run exhibition poster that features all 30 artworks (each image will be about 4x4 inches), and permission to use the artist's name and submitted artwork in promotional materials for the exhibition and auction, including media materials, brochure, and dedicated website.

Instructions/Project Contact:

Please send a brief note indicating the article you would like to illustrate and your intended approach and medium, as well as a second choice if possible, along with a resume or biography, and photos of a selection of your work or a web address if your work is available online. Send to:

New opportunity in Kingston for artists to sell their art !!!

Fact Sheet

What - Arts Market offers Kingston Area artists and artisans one day a week to showcase and sell their creations at market square. The idea was spawned by the Artists in Business committee of the Entrepreneurship Centre at KEDCO. Kingston Sunday Antique Market operators Al Smith and Jan Singleton submitted a proposal to the First Capital Place Committee for permission to initiate, organize and administrate the project. They have the expertise, contacts, established good track record and knowledge of the by-laws and requirements for doing business in the market.

Why – there is currently no public location for professional artists to show and sell. Neither is there an outdoor area where residents and tourists can view and purchase work by local artisans. The market is an ideal site.

When - Fridays between Victoria Day and Labour Day.

2008 trial period - Four Fridays – July 4, 11, 18 and 25. Should this be successful, the project will continue Aug. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 and Sept.5. It is imperative that once begun, this project is offered on a regular basis (each Friday) to create a sense of consistency and establish a clientele.

Where – the actual portion of market square is flexible depending on current bookings and recommendations from the committee. For the purposes of this proposal, the location suggestion is around the south court (see Appendix 1 – market map) 10 - 8 x 22 and 12 – 8 x 8. It is not yet known how many interested vendors will participate, so this is an estimate for the trial period.

Who – the vendors will be artists and artisans who create and sell their own works of art and do business as such. It is the intention to stay away from traditional Crafts (crochet, tea cosies, etc.) and focus the market more on Fine Art and high quality artisans. Guidelines will be created to describe the criteria.

Risk - As with any outdoor venue, there are weather conditions to consider. For instance, rain and high winds would be a high risk to artisans selling paintings and breakable items.

Booth Fees – 8’ x 8’ - $25; 8’ x 22’ - $35; 16’ x 22’ - $50

FOR MORE INFORMATION and to receive an application, please contact Jan Singleton at [email protected] 613-217-9647 or Al Smith [email protected] 613-546-1055.
