The Nooks and Crannies Festival organizers are calling out for submissions for the summer 2021 event in downtown Okotoks. Artists have until May 15 to submit their proposed designs at Okotoks.ca/nooks.
The festival is entering its third year and will once again fill downtown Okotoks with the creativity of local artists using recycled products to create imaginative art installations. The art pieces are intended to raise environmental awareness, animate spaces, entertain audiences and promote businesses.
With all installations using recyclable materials, environmental awareness and sustainability will be key themes. While not required of all accepted artists, the jury will favour artist proposals that include a public engagement or collaboration component.
The Town encourages artists to engage with community members and/or community groups (i.e. schools, seniors’ centres, community organizations and/or local businesses). Please clearly state that you will work or are willing to work with, team up with or lead a local group in your application.
See Okotoks.ca/nooks for more information on how to submit a proposal.
