The Convent - Call for Public Art
Permanent Public Art Commission

Location: 37 Nepean St, Sydney, NS, Canada
Deadline: January 4, 2019, 5:00PM AST

New Dawn seeks permanent art works for new building

Sydney, Nova Scotia - New Dawn Enterprises is seeking applications for the commission of three permanent works of art to be featured in The Convent, a new Centre for Arts and Culture located in Sydney, Nova Scotia that will be opening in the fall of 2019.

This new public art will live in the building from opening day, inspiring both the first occupants of the space and community members who come to celebrate this historical event in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.

Deadline for application submissions is January 4th, 2019 5PM AST with a total budget of $60,000 for the creation of three new public works.

In 2013, New Dawn Enterprises purchased the former Holy Angels Convent and High School from the Sisters of Notre Dame. The acquisition was driven by a desire to preserve the buildings that had contributed to the spirit and character of the north end, Sydney, and Cape Breton Island. Through subsequent conversations with the community, the focus of the building’s repurposing soon became the provision of modern, safe, well-designed, and affordable work spaces for artists.

The Convent will become a vibrant new home to visual artists, dancers, musicians, writers, students, and entrepreneurs driven by the desire to create, collaborate, and build community – through art – both inside and outside of the building.

Applications are welcome from contemporary artists working in a wide range of disciplines including visual art, film, music/sound, etc. There are a total of three (3) opportunities listed in this call. This call is open to Canadian artists, as well as international artists working in or outside Canada. Successful proposals will be selected by peer assessment (jury). The jury will review applications the end of January 2019, with successful applicants notified in early February.
