The City of Lethbridge is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from Indigenous artists to facilitate a community engagement process in support of a commemoration initiative centered around Residential School Survivors and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ Peoples.
The successful artist will conduct community engagement for the commemoration initiative and present recommendations on how it should be undertaken.
The desired outcome of the Indigenous Legacy Commemoration Project is to honor victims, survivors, and their families. The successful artist will aim to gather a deeper understanding of the community's expectations for commemoration while increasing the public visibility and representation of Blackfoot and the other Indigenous peoples who call Lethbridge home.
The City of Lethbridge is committed to reconciliation and fostering strong relationships with Indigenous peoples and communities, founded on respect and shared understanding of history. This project is a joint initiative of the City's Reconciliation Lethbridge Advisory Committee, Public Art Program and Indigenous Relations Office.
The deadline for artist submissions is March 10, 2023 and more information including eligibility, timelines and budget can be found here.
Please note, an earlier version of this announcement advised there were two commemoration projects. There is one single project and the revised version above shows the corrected information.
