January 5, 2015 – Attention artists!
Aga Khan Foundation Canada is looking for talented Canadians to create a piece of artwork for our travelling exhibition. Together: An exhibition on global development is an interactive, bilingual experience for all ages, sparking discussions on how Canadians are driving positive change around the world. Visitors are invited to climb aboard and explore a custom-built transport truck with 1,000 square feet of exhibition space, travelling coast-to-coast for two years.
We want you to create a piece of art showing why you care about global development. We will then ask Canadians coast-to-coast to vote on their favourite entries. You can encourage your friends and family to vote too! The winning artist will get to attend the launch of Together’s 2016 tour in British Columbia, have their art displayed in the exhibition for six months as it travels across Canada, and receive a $500 gift certificate for art supplies.
This is a chance to showcase your artistic talents and share your vision of global development, positive change, and working together as global citizens. If chosen, your artwork will be prominently displayed in the exhibition, where it will be seen by people who want to learn about and take action on the world’s biggest challenges—like alleviating global poverty and working with those in the world’s poorest regions to improve their lives.
