The City of Vancouver is seeking artists for its Utility Box Wrap Program for 2016. This year, there are approximately 27 utility boxes across the city that will be wrapped with digital art. Three of those boxes are within Hastings Crossing BIA, and we would love to have some local Downtown Eastside artists apply for the program and see their art in the neighbourhood!
There will be $1000 compensation for approved and completed submissions.
For the boxes within HxBIA, we would love to see art that reflects the heritage, activism, and First Nations culture in the community.
Too apply for the program, check out the posting from the City of Vancouver’s website here. Note on your application that you would prefer your work on one of the boxes within HxBIA!
