Queen’s Faculty of Law Calls for Submissions from Indigenous Artists

Plans are underway for the opening of a new arts space at the Queen’s University Faculty of Law in the Fall of 2018.  A call for participation has been issued for indigenous artists to submit their work to the program by November 20th, 2017. According to an article by the university’s student publication,

This project aims to complement efforts by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Task Force by increasing the visibility of Indigenous art and culture on campus. The project emerged at the beginning of the year when student senator and TRC Task Force member Jason Mercredi brought up the lack of Indigenous representation at the law school with Dean Bill Flanagan.

Accepted pieces will be exhibited within the main atrium of the law school’s John A. Macdonald Hall. If you are an artist looking for more information on how to become a part of this exhibition, full details can be found here: http://law.queensu.ca/indigenous-art-project . Submissions can be made to the following email address: lawartproject@queensu.ca .
