Hi all, just received this alert from the folks at Shakespeare in Action:

CALLING ALL ARTISTS! Shakespeare in Action, Central United Church & The Weston Historical Society invite artists to submit works or proposals for a three-day public art event, Weston: Then & Now, to reflect on Central United Church’s 200th Anniversary. This heritage event is open to multiple responses in the form of storytelling, visual art, multi-media art and performance art creation to activate spaces throughout Central United Church in exploring and reflecting on Weston’s past, present and future.

This will be a free three-day event March 25-27,2022 inside Central United Church that amplifies its two-hundred year old history, and while engaging artists and storytellers to create installations in the Church around the theme “Weston Then and Now.” On the event’s dates, we will open the doors of the Church and guests will be encouraged to roam around the various rooms to experience the various installations.

This event is open to varied interpretations of the subject, from literal or narrative-inspired to far-ranging or symbolic. Representational images of remembered sights, activities, impressions or atmosphere, as well as surrealistic or abstract evocations related to the subject are welcome. This is a PAID opportunity for Artists.
