The Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) is requesting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for an Indigenous Legacy Item.
JIBC’s New Westminster campus is located on the traditional, unceded territories of the Qayqayt and Musqueam Nations. In order to better reflect the Indigenous students and communities in which we serve and work, JIBC is seeking an Indigenous artist to design and complete a Legacy Item to be displayed in the Atrium area of the New Westminster campus.
A Legacy Item is considered a work such as a Welcome Post/Pole or Canoe. The maximum height for the Legacy Item is 20 feet with a maximum diameter base of 5 feet.
To be considered for selection, Indigenous artists are requested to submit a written Expression of Interest containing:
- detailed information on similar work experience including photographs
- artist biography
The second phase of the proposal will involve a more detailed proposal and cost. Three parties will be requested to submit a sketch or maquette, a written description, a price, and a schedule to produce their proposed work. All Legacy Item ideas will be considered.
An Indigenous led selection committee will review the submissions.
Note: the preparation for the work will require a site visit.
All work purchased will become the property of JIBC and will give recognition by naming the artist. Proposed work not commissioned at this time may be commissioned later when additional funding is obtained.
Expressions of Interest should be signed, completed and received by appointment at the Justice Institute of British Columbia prior to the closing date. Electronic submissions are preferred at this time.
