The City of Vancouver is welcoming submissions for Platforms: We Are Here, Live, a public art program which will commission temporary artworks for existing platforms throughout Vancouver.

The program focuses on artists working in video and two-dimensional media and each commissioned artist will receive $5,000 for the creation, editing and design of the artwork.

The City hopes to feature up to twenty Vancouver-based and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) artists, who are grappling with the issues revealed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Emerging artists and those new to working in the public realm are encouraged to apply.
