 PAPERGIRL CALGARY CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

pic


Extra! Extra! Read all about it... Papergirl Calgary is calling you! Art should be accessible to everyone!

Taking art out of the gallery and into the streets via old-school bicycle delivery format - this is Papergirl.

What happens in a Papergirl project?

  • A call for art submissions goes out to Calgary's art community, and across Canada
  • All artwork is exhibited (Papergirl has proudly partnered with EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts in Calgary)
  • At the end of the exhibit all submitted works are rolled up and delivered at random by Papergirls 'n boys to the unsuspecting local Calgary community. It's a massive 'giftervention'!


The Results of Papergirl?

Artists of all styles, genres and experience, exhibit their work together AND share it with a new 'collector'. Papergirls 'n boys get some great exercise and plenty of smiles whilst gifting art. Volunteers get to know their community a bit better, AND hundreds of Calgarians make and receive fabulous works of art!

THAT'S PAPERGIRL! THE ART OF GIVING ART!
