Extra! Extra! Read all about it… Papergirl Calgary is calling you! Art should be accessible to everyone!
Taking art out of the gallery and into the streets via old-school bicycle delivery format - this is Papergirl.
What happens in a Papergirl project?
- A call for art submissions goes out to Calgary’s art community, and across Canada
- All artwork is exhibited (Papergirl has proudly partnered with EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts in Calgary)
- At the end of the exhibit all submitted works are rolled up and delivered at random by Papergirls ‘n boys to the unsuspecting local Calgary community. It’s a massive ‘giftervention’!
The Results of Papergirl?
Artists of all styles, genres and experience, exhibit their work together AND share it with a new ‘collector’. Papergirls ‘n boys get some great exercise and plenty of smiles whilst gifting art. Volunteers get to know their community a bit better, AND hundreds of Calgarians make and receive fabulous works of art!
THAT’S PAPERGIRL! THE ART OF GIVING ART!
