Open Call to Artists for Pathway to Potential’s “Share Your Story” Campaign
Pathway to Potential (P2P) is excited to announce an open call for artists to participate in a unique and inspiring project. P2P is seeking creative individuals to submit proposals for an innovative display that will bring to life the stories and experiences that are being shared by Windsor-Essex residents through the "Share Your Story" postcard campaign.
Submissions for artwork will be accepted from August 28, 2023, to September 15, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. Interested artists are encouraged to submit proposals for a display that embrace the essence of the campaign while incorporating their unique artistic vision. The artwork should be two-dimensional and created using any medium, with a preferred size of 27 by 40 inches.
This initiative aims to celebrate the diverse narratives of individuals who have utilized P2P services and programs, showcasing the impactful support provided by P2P to the community. Artists will have the opportunity to translate these personal journeys into an artistic piece that will be displayed in prominent indoor public location(s).
The "Share Your Story" campaign involved the distribution of 2,000 postcards across Windsor-Essex County during the summer of 2023. These postcards have been filled with heartfelt stories and experiences of individuals who have benefited from P2P services. As the campaign wraps up in September, these narratives will be digitized, providing a wealth of inspiration for the commissioned artist.
Pathway to Potential (P2P) is a collaborative initiative funded by the City of Windsor and County of Essex. P2P focuses on enhancing the quality of life for Windsor-Essex residents through social investments and partnerships that support vulnerable individuals, remove barriers, and promote community well-being.
