Rise Up 2018! Call for Artwork


Note: Submission deadline is March 15, 2018. Winning entry will be announced March 21 and featured on our 2018 conference materials.

Inclusion BC invites BC artists with intellectual disabilities to submit visual artwork and photography for our 2018 conference. The artwork will be used in our conference program and other materials about our annual event, which takes place in Kelowna, BC from May 24 – 26, 2018.

Artwork theme: Rise Up!
Communities across BC are changing to reflect our increasingly diverse society. Inclusion is now a core principle in our public schools, in the places where we live and work and in the social bonds that support and strengthen us as communities.

Our vision is strong and great things are happening. But too many people with intellectual disabilities still face exclusion and isolation. This year’s theme reminds us that together, we have the answers and the power to rise up. We can join people driving grassroots changes in our communities as well as a global movement to build a world where we all belong.

Submission Details:

  • To submit a piece of art, send an email that includes the artist’s name and contact information and a scanned image or photo of the art to by March 15, 2018.
  • You could also mail a photo with the artist’s name and contact information to Karen DeLong c/o Inclusion BC, 227 6th St., New Westminster, BC, V3L 3A5.

The winner will be announced on March 22 and we will contact all artists who submitted images to let them know. The artist whose work is chosen will receive a free conference registration or an equal cash honorarium for the use of the image.

Please note: The art must be created by a self-advocate or a person with an intellectual disability who is willing to give us permission to use the image of their artwork in the conference materials.

Please contact Karen DeLong at 604-777-9100 ext. 530 or if you have any questions.
