Artists or artist teams who live or work in New Westminster and the Lower Mainland (which includes the regional districts of Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley) are invited to submit qualifications for public art opportunities under $25,000.

Projects will vary widely and artists practicing in all media are encouraged to apply. Examples of such projects may include (but is not limited to) community engaged projects, site-responsive commissions for temporary works, artist residencies or design only contracts for permanent installations throughout the city. The Artist Roster is a list of artists who pre-qualify to create public art throughout the city. It allows for a streamlined selection process and will be one of several ways used to hire artists.
