If you had the chance to creatively express your connection to Ontario’s Greenbelt visually or musically, how would you do it? Greenbelt Arts is providing the opportunity for artists of all practices to participate in a multimedia installation that represents what the Greenbelt means to you!
For the In the Soil Arts Festival in 2012, Greenbelt Arts created a group parachute. This year, they are looking to create a high profile project for the festival that will record previously undocumented experiences within theGreenbelt. They are seeking four visual artists to collaborate with four musical artists.
The project mission: to fabricate culture and meaning that realize an imagined place, derived from everyday life and experience in the Greenbelt region.
Each visual artist will develop and create relics and artifacts that represent their own understanding of life in the Greenbelt, as if their creations exist as independent territories. The project will be made up of different found and made artifacts including: flags, maps and globes, symbols and languages, or other traditional artifacts.
Visual and musical artists will work together to create an anthem or musical style specific for the region they are creating.
All completed pieces, visual and musical, will be presented during the In The Soil Arts Festival during the last weekend of April 2013 in downtown St. Catharines.
