Hodul’eh-a Call for First Nation Artists

Call for First Nation Artists

The Exploration Place is excited to announce a call for local First Nation artists to design and create a beautiful carved piece of art to welcome visitors into Hodul’eh-a: A Place of Learning.  We would like to acknowledge that this project would not have been possible without the generous support of the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.

Overview of Project:

In 2016, The Exploration Place and the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation embarked on a new permanent gallery to showcase Lheidli T’enneh culture and history. On June 21st 2017, Hodul’eh-a: A Place of Learning opened to the public and has been a positive step towards reconciliation in the City of Prince George.
Lheidli T’enneh First Nation Chief and Council as well as Lheidli T’enneh Elders have participated in multiple consultations and made hugely significant contributions in the areas of content, language, and design in Hodul’eh-a.
The new carving will welcome visitors into the space and ultimately form a key piece of the Gallery. It is our hope that the chosen piece will encompass the vision of the gallery as a place of learning and invite interaction from visitors.
Preference will be given to artists that can spend time working on their project within the museum who are able to interact with visitors while working. We are excited to work with the community and recognize an artist that is doing amazing work.
The deadline for submissions is April 22nd 2018 at 5:00 PM.
