About the Project
Green Venture, in collaboration with Kahnekanoron, and with support from Canada Healthy Communities Initiative, a Federal government program via the Community Foundations of Canada, is creating a Living Land Acknowledgement at EcoHouse (22 Veevers Drive, Hamilton). The installation is intended to support meaningful reconciliation and recognize Indigenous peoples’ history and culture.
The installation is part of a larger project to create a Children’s Naturescape at EcoHouse which provides enhanced community greenspace for healthy outdoor play, nature exploration, and environmental learning.
The successful artist or collective will receive a $4,000 honorarium. Additional funding of up to $4,500 (including any taxes) will be provided to cover project material costs.
We aim to provide an accessible experience for all applicants. If you have restrictions that need to be accommodated to participate in any phase of the application process fully, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that all accommodation requests be submitted within ten business days of the application due date.
