Call to Artists🎨 Art Banner Project Phase 2!
Phase 2 of the Art Banner project has begun!
Through the beauty of community, the North End Business Association (NEBA) hopes to canvas the North End neighborhood with art. The North End of Halifax houses a diverse community, and we want to see how you would represent it through your art. The ultimate goal is twofold, first to see the vibrant representation of the community that lives here and secondly, to celebrate all of the talent and creativity that we have in our neighborhood! The North End is rooted in multiculturalism, DIY, and community-minded living. A place where culture, diversity, and creativity thrive.
The North End Business Association is seeking submissions from artists of various disciplines, skill levels and backgrounds to fill our neighbourhood with art! Chosen artists will have their work prominently displayed in a series of community art banners on light poles throughout the North End Halifax district.
