Artistic immigrants to York Region encouraged to submit their works


Immigrant artists in York Region are being asked to submit their artwork for consideration for a variety of uses by York Regional Council, including upcoming Newcomer guides.

York Region Arts Council has partnered with York Regional Council to share a call out for art (photography, paintings, drawings, poetry, creative writing, photos of sculpture), created by immigrant artists living in York Region.

Submissions will be considered for inclusion in the 2023-2026 York Region newcomer plan publication (such as front/back cover and interior images) as well as in ongoing Local Immigration Partnership communications materials ( website, staff presentations in community, photo exhibit, etc.).

The selected artist work will receive an honorarium (between $300-$600).

To enter your work for consideration, please fill out the submission form by January 27, 2023.

*Please note that there is no guarantee that York Region will use submitted pieces in any way. The selected artists will be contacted by YRAC directly if chosen, and be required to sign an artist release form provided by York Region.
