CITY | CALL FOR ARTISTS | Bear Creek Athletic Centre | DL August 31st
The City of Surrey invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) from professional artists or artist teams to create a large-scale artwork on the façade of the future Bear Creek Athletics Centre. Bear Creek Park is a much beloved gathering place for the community and the sporting amenities are being upgraded to host sport competitions and support the needs of the community. The design includes an improved track and partially covered grandstand seating for 2,200 spectators. An artwork is envisioned that welcomes visitors to the park and grandstand while maintaining an inviting atmosphere that residents feel comfortable playing, exercising, and gathering around.

INDIGENOUS ARTIST CALL
On behalf of the Over the Rainbow Concert Organization, We would like to sincerely invite indigenous artists including musicians, dancers and singers to join us in this charitable event
Date: September 30, 2022 | Location: Michael J Fox Theatre, 7pm.

The purpose of the charitable event is to promote truth and reconciliation. By telling the stories of the aboriginal people, the history of the boarding school will be remembered from generation to generation, and people will know and respect the history, culture and tradition of the aboriginal people, so that the tragic history will not be repeated. At the same time, work for extending beyond this tragic history and jointly build a bright future for Canada.
Our director team has been on the stage of the Beijing Olympic Games, the United Nations headquarters, and has more than 15 years of local performance experience. The director team has devoted themselves to the history and culture of the Indigenous people of North America, and is full of love and respect for the indigenous culture of North America.
