2020 Pandemic Summer “Virtual Street/Art Tour of Yellowknife” CIERF Grant

I received word today that I will be receiving the grant to “video art the arts” in Yellowknife until October…

The work will be a “Virtual Street/Art Tour of Yellowknife”


In August of 2007, on the occasion of the first Old Town Ramble & Ride I shot a series of 34 photographs celebrating the event, hand an exhibition of them at the former Robin’s Nest Restaurant, published a 20 page photo catalogue…

In the spirit and celebration of Old Town Ramble and Ride, I’ll build on this concept and shoot a series of short documentations of the arts and artists in Yellowknife, including, but not limited to; the artists, the street art, studios and exhibitions happening over the 2020 Pandemic Summer.

As I usually do as the artist… I shall record and edit the images and sound.
Why?
To document the artistic community’s work over this special summer and help replace the usual venues.

I received word today that I will be receiving the grant to cover the arts in Yellowknife until October… “… NWTArts told me today “… Thank you for your application to the Northwest Territories (NWT) Creative Industries Economic Recovery Fund (CIERF). The CIERF Review Panel has now completed the review of submissions and we are pleased to inform you that your project proposal has been approved.
In the next two weeks a contribution agreement (CA) will be developed for your signature. It is important to note that you will receive two payments for this project. A first payment of 85% of project costs will be issued upon processing the CA, and a final payment of 15% will be provided upon completion of the project and when reporting is provided (before March 31, 2021)….”
