Submission deadline: October 10, 2022
The Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA) is seeking submissions for a brand-new market promoting art, wellness and self-care. We are searching for Alberta based vendors whose offerings are locally made, unique, carefully crafted and beneficial to its owner. We are open to a variety of art, products and services, including bath and beauty, perfumes, jewelry, candles, plants, items that promote self-care, prints and multiples, and art. This is a great opportunity to showcase your work with the AGA’s community in busy downtown Edmonton.
The Art of Wellness Market will take place on Saturday, November 19, 2022, from 11 am-5pm in Manning Hall at the AGA. The market is open and free to the public to shop and browse the tables by local markers, artists, and entrepreneurs. This market prioritizes vendors that are making items and offering services which have an aim to help, heal, offer care and improve people’s health and happiness from a variety of angles.
Selected vendors will be responsible for their booths, including set up and strike, prepared with their own payment processing equipment and will handle their own sales. The AGA will not take any portion of the proceeds from sales; however, we are charging a $75 vendor fee which includes a 6x2 table and two chairs.
Please complete the submission form by Thursday, October 10, 2022. If selected, you will be notified shortly after the deadline. If you have any questions about the online application, please email Public Programs and Outreach Coordinator, Michael Magnussen, at Michael.Magnussen@youraga.ca
Through this open call for submissions, a committee of AGA staff will review submissions and select the vendors for this market based on the following criteria:
- Connection to art and wellness
We are aiming for 50% of tables to be reserved for vendors from equity-seeking groups.
The AGA encourages applications from Indigenous, First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, people of colour, persons with disabilities and members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
