2016 FESTIVAL OF LIGHT ARTISTIC COMPETITION

We are currently seeking organizations or individuals (local artists, architects, designers) with a passion for the arts and the environment to share their vision with the local community. This year we are opening the floor to anyone with an artistic vision, who is interesting in designing an exhibit for the up and coming festival. The theme of the competition is “Alternative Energy”. This theme allows our artists to show their creative side with few restrictions, so individuals or teams are able to work with different light materials, ice sculptures or any other creative ideas to come up with a winter light themed exhibit. Keep in mind, many of these exhibits will also include the stars of the Edmonton Valley Zoo themselves, the animals!

Below is a series of questions we will need you to answer in order for this to be the best Festival of Light yet! Also a few things to keep in mind are:

- Chosen projects will be provided with a budget of $3,500.00. You’re use of the funds is discretionary as long as the project approved is the project built.
- Power will be provided by the Edmonton Valley Zoo, you just need to ensure the exhibit is maintained, keep in mind our harsh winter conditions. Your project must include power needs and specifications…keeping mind alternative energy sources are the preferred manner. We require our artists to use timers to minimize the power used during the 10 day festival period.
- Be creative: anything goes here with materials, this can be ice, lights, anything! Just let us know what we can help provide to you!
- It is a city wide festival, so people from all over Edmonton will be able to view your submission, so it is a great way to gain awareness about your work.
- This is fun! So keep it light-hearted and enjoyable! We want energetic people with a love of the arts to share in this experience.

Pacha Arts Storytelling: Cree Stories of Wiinipaakw

-Toronto, ON-
614 Bloor st W
July 17th, 2016
4-6pm

Join the Pacha Arts family for an afternoon of storytelling with Lawrence Cheechoo.
This event is open to everyone of all ages and backgrounds. It is part of Pacha Art’s mandate to promote, support, and showcase different indigneous art forms to be shared with all

“My name is Lawrence Cheechoo, I am Cree from the Moose Cree First Nation in Northern Ontario. Growing up in Northern Ontario surrounded by family, nature and wild animals fostered my interest in Cree tradition, language, and history.

Since an early age I was taught the importance of acknowledging and understanding one’s own cultural identity. From a young age my parents would tell stories of our past. The stories about hardship and survival and the legends from our ancestors that teach us about our relation to the world around us both spiritual and natural. Even still as I tell these stories there is still a lesson in them that still resonates with me.

Living in the city of Toronto offers many opportunities to learn about and observe people and culture. I am a firm believer that any value placed in one’s own cultural heritage will go a long way to understanding the value in another’s cultural heritage as well.

As an indigenous person I feel that through compassion, responsibility, respect and love that we can fulfill our ultimate role to ourselves, each other and our community.

Thank you all”
