The municipal government is looking to sponsor a major art installation for Toronto’s [or local city of choice] upcoming Nuit Blanche, a free, 12-hour, city-wide art exhibit featuring hundreds of artists from around the world. With the intent of inspiring understanding between cultural and linguistic communities, the city is asking for proposals for an interactive art installation that combines a celebration from one of the local cultures (e.g. Valentine’s Day in Canada) with elements from a similar or different celebration from one or two other cultures (e.g. New Year’s Eve in Thailand).

Your group has decided to submit a proposal for an interactive art installation.  You will work on researching celebrations in various languages/cultures, design an event which meets the submission guidelines, write a proposal, and receive feedback from other artists in the class.

Task Overview:

  1. Research celebrations in different cultures and languages
  2. Design an art installation / event
  3. Write a proposal for the event
