Call for Proposals: Public Art at Keshen Goodman Library – Children’s Area (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Halifax Regional Municipality is seeking artist-led proposals for the design of an original work of art to be installed within the newly redesigned children’s area of Keshen Goodman Public Library (330 Lacewood Drive, Halifax).

The Keshen Goodman Public Library provides critical social infrastructure with a diverse patronage including newcomers, seniors, youth, and young families. Equitable access to language learning, technology, meaningful programming, and social opportunities are all essential services provided by the branch. The branch is well-used by all age groups with very well-attended programming for youth, seniors, families, and everything in between.

The selected art piece should be reflective of the diverse community served by the Keshen Goodman Public Library, while also promoting active engagement and play-based learning.

The total budget for the project is $70,000 CDN + HST.

Proposal Deadline:
Artists must submit their proposals on or before September 15, 2023 at 5pm (AST)

Project Installation:
