Call for Makers: The Shop at CityScape
CityScape Community ArtSpace
Ongoing
Submission Deadline: Ongoing

North Van Arts is seeking makers to be part of  The Shop at CityScape, an area of CityScape Community ArtSpace dedicated to the display and sale of small works by local makers.

We aim to showcase small, hand-made items with reasonably accessible prices (less than $50) and a broad demographic appeal.

The artist will collect 70% of the sale of each item, with 30% retained by North Van Arts. Royalties will be paid quarterly and contracts will last 6 months, and may be renewed upon agreement of the artist and the North Van Arts.

Submissions are accepted online. We do not accept unsolicited materials at this time, but if applying online creates a barrier for you please contact any of our staff at 604-988-6844.

The Shop at CityScape is better suited to objects (pottery, jewellery, glass works, candles, soap etc.) rather than photography, painting and other forms of 2D works .

To submit your work for consideration, please fill in the required elements below.

If you have any questions about having your work in The Shop, please contact Leigh-Anne Niehaus during office hours at 604-988-6844 or email leighanne@northvanarts.ca with ‘The Shop at CityScape’ in the subject. We are currently programming 2022-2023 display dates.
