Public art will be an integral part of the design and construction of the facility. It will beautify, enliven and activate various spaces within the facility.
We will have two public art initiatives for the facility:
- Artist on Design Team to encourage art and architecture collaboration on an iconic work of art
- Indigenous Art and Placemaking Program for First Nations, Inuit and Métis artists to recognize, support and value Indigenous art and cultures
These initiatives are made possible by the City’s Public Art Policy, which makes art accessible to everyone by mandating one percent of funds from municipal development be used for public art.
Call for artists for Artist on Design Team
The City invites professional artists or artist teams to submit qualifications to collaborate with the architectural design team to design, fabricate and install a permanent, site-specific artwork integrated into the facility. Learn more about the Request for Qualifications.
