Indigenous artists

Abitibi-Témiscamingue, March 26, 2021

Beyond being a means of expression, art allows to share and disseminate the richness and values of different cultures. Thus, to raise awareness and promote the cultural heritage of the Algonquin communities of Abitibi-Temiscamingue among its employees, Agnico Eagle wishes to showcase creations of local indigenous artists in its various workplaces in Ouebec and Ontario, where more than 3 000 people pass through every day.

We therefore are calling for artwork proposais from indigenous emerging and professional artists.

The call for proposais consists of four steps :

  • Step 1 : Call to artists and submission of entry forms
  • Step 2 : Final selection of sketches/artwork
  • Step 3 : Contracts for the acquisition of the artworks
  • Step 4 : Creation/delivery of the artwork and promotion

lnterested artists must complete and return their application by May 3, 2021 at midnight.

A selection committee will choose the artworks by June 1 st• 2021 and the selected artists must be able to deliver their final artwork by September 30th , 2021.
