Eltuek Arts Centre Call for Submissions 2022/23

Eltuek Arts Centre – Call for Art
Location: 170 George Street, Sydney, Unama’ki, Nova Scotia
Deadline: Monday, January 31, 2022, 5:00PM AST

Eltuek Arts Centre is in Unama’ki, one of the seven traditional and unceded ancestral districts of the people of Mi’kma’ki. This territory is covered by the Treaties of Peace and Friendship of 1726. This treaty did not involve the surrender of land. We wish to recognize and honour this understanding of the lands on which we reside. It is from here, on these lands, that we work to create and support a culture of self-reliance and vitality in Unama’ki. We are all treaty people.

Eltuek (pronounced el-du-ehg) is a Mi’kmaw word, meaning “we are making (it) together.” The (it) refers to whatever it is that we decide to make – art, ideas, a shared meal, music, community, a brighter future. The importance of the name is that is accessible, inclusive, and continuous.

Eltuek Arts Centre is seeking applications for art exhibitions to be shown in multiple exhibition spaces located throughout the building, as well as in our dedicated gallery. Exhibition locations will be assessed by the Eltuek team.

Applications are welcome from emerging and professional contemporary artists working in a wide range of disciplines including visual art, film and video art, sound art, installation, sculpture, intervention art and performance art, etc.

Proposals will be reviewed by peer assessment and selected artists will receive professional artists’ fees.
