Rise Up 2018! Call for Artwork

Summary:

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 kdelong@inclusionbc.org 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 kdelong@inclusionbc.org if you have any questions.

Niall & Marcus Talk About Sh!t Niall Likes

JOIN NIALL MCNEIL, MARCUS YOUSSEF, AND FRIENDS FOR AN EVENING OF GOOD TIMES TALKING ABOUT SH!T NIALL LIKES.

Presented by New Westminster Arts Services

Created and performed by Niall McNeil and Marcus Youssef, directed by Chelsea Haberlin. Music by Veda Hille. Special guests TBA. In Development.

Produced by Neworld Theatre, created with the support of the Boca Del Lupo artist residency program.

Niall McNeil likes to talk and Marcus Youssef is one of his favorite people to talk to. They live around the corner from each other and have known each other since Niall was 18 years old. Niall’s got an opinion about pretty much everything, and he’s funny, too. Niall and Marcus talk about his friends, writing, music, photographs and videos, acting, the grocery store Niall works at, his homemade CSI videos, romance, Beauty and the Beast – all the sh!t Niall likes. It’s a conversation that changes every time they have it. It also questions who in our culture we allow to speak, and who we expect to listen.

Niall is a professional actor and Marcus is a well-known Canadian playwright. Over the last 10 years they have devised a way to write together and, working with musician Veda Hille, written two big shows: Peter Panties (PuSh Festival) and King Arthur’s Night (Luminato, National Arts Centre, PuSh Festival). These groundbreaking productions put the vision of a neurodiverse artist at the centre of their creation, offering audiences a perspective on iconic stories unlike any they have ever seen.
