Reminder: Imagine Charlottetown Sneak Peek
Posted on 03/04/2020
The public is invited to The Guild (111 Queen Street) tomorrow (Thursday, March 5) for a sneak peek of the submissions obtained in the Imagine Charlottetown Idea Bank to date. The free event is being hosted by the City of Charlottetown Arts Advisory Board from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. and will include a presentation of the photos and written submissions gathered by the Board. There will also be an opportunity for the public to submit ideas at the event. All are welcome to attend.

The Advisory Board has been collecting submissions for the Imagine Charlottetown Idea Bank, which is a public database of artwork ideas, suggested mediums, and locations to inspire more art in the city. This Sneak Peek will be a great opportunity to review what others have submitted and discuss what might be possible in the city.

Ideas are being collected until Tuesday, March 31 at 4 p.m., and can be submitted via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, mail or dropped off at City Hall (199 Queen Street). Submissions can be written concepts, art suggestions and include maps, photos, and examples from other locations. There are no restrictions for ideas, which can range from sculptures and murals to light or sound installations. By submitting to the Idea Bank, participants are agreeing to have their submission publicly available.

To submit to the Imagine Charlottetown Idea Bank, use #ImagineCharlottetown on social media, email imagine@charlottetown.ca or mail to:
Attn: Arts Advisory Board c/o City of Charlottetown
PO Box 98, Charlottetown, PE, C1A 7K2
