Redesigning the North Park intersection is messy business, but the city is trying to make sure that at the end of it all there’s some nice art to show for it—sandblasted into the concrete, forever!

Right now Halifax is seeking an artist or arts facilitator for one of three planned entrance plazas on the Halifax Common, who will create a work that “reflects the unique aspects of the local LGBTQ community.” The other two plazas will feature art from the African Nova Scotian community and the Aboriginal community, and calls for artists will happen soon.

Through consultations with the LGBTQ community, a theme was chosen: “celebration and struggle as seen through the lens of history, as well as the recognition and importance of diversity and inclusion.” Broad enough for all of your artistic imaginings!

The successful artist for the LGBTQ project will participate in community discussions hosted by Youth Project and the municipality this summer.

Those interested in applying for the LGBTQ project can mail their submission to:

Kate MacLennan, Community Developer
Parks & Recreation
Halifax Regional Municipality
P.O. Box 1749
Halifax, NS, B3J 3A5

Applicants can also drop their submission off in person at the George Dixon Recreation Center, 2502 Brunswick Street, Halifax. The deadline to apply is 4:30pm on Monday, June 15.
