Library seeks to honour First Nation art

FVRL looking for artist to showcase throughout June 2014

The Fraser Valley Regional Library is looking for an Aboriginal Artist in Residence in an effort to promote Aboriginal arts as a way of sharing cultural knowledge throughout the Fraser Valley.

“The artist will provide a valuable link between FVRL and local Aboriginal communities, allowing the library to honour Aboriginal cultures and build trust” says Kim Davison, Library Programs Coordinator.

The artist will work with FVRL throughout the month of June in 2014 to reflect and celebrate the diversity of our communities. The artist will tour 12 FVRL locations as they work on an art project. They will interact with the public both informally and through organized presentations to groups.

FVRL welcomes applications from experienced Aboriginal artists of all visual disciplines, and who work in any materials or combination of materials. The successful applicant will be paid an honorarium for their work. Preference will be given to artists living in one of FVRL 15 member municipalities.

Prospective artists can learn more about this position, including how to apply, by visiting the Careers section of www.fvrl.ca.
