An innovative partnership between the City of Ottawa and the Algonquins of Ontario has been formed to celebrate Algonquin art, culture and heritage through the Ottawa Light Rail Transit (OLRT) project. This project has gained considerable momentum as LeBreton Flats has been identified as an “Algonquin centred” transit station. The location of this station is of particular significance to the Algonquins as it is within close proximity to Chaudière Falls and Victoria Island, both of which are sacred gathering places for the Algonquins since time immemorial.
The Algonquins of Ontario are seeking proposals for an experienced and dynamic Algonquin Art Liaison to facilitate and coordinate two Calls by the OLRT Art Program inviting Algonquin artists to be involved in the design of the look and feel of LeBreton Flats Transit Station. The successful candidate will work to solicit and encourage participation of Algonquin artists in these Calls through the planning and implementation of a range of initiatives including workshops, outreach programs and diverse communication strategies. To learn more about this Request for Proposals, please see the attached file or call (613) 735-3759.
Proposals must be submitted no later than Friday, November 2, 2012 at 4 p.m. to firstname.lastname@example.org
