Canada-Wide Call for Projects

Artists from All 13 Canadian Provinces and Territories Invited to Participate in Riopelle’s Centenary Celebrations

One of Canada’s largest cultural mediation programs ever seen will proudly showcase the talent of creators from sea to sea

On the eve of the celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of world-renowned Canadian artist Jean Paul Riopelle, the Riopelle Foundation is launching a vast, pan-Canadian cultural mediation program in partnership with Culture pour tous: Dialogues: Encounters with Riopelle’s Oeuvre from Sea to Sea.

Wishing to offer people and artists across the country the chance to (re)discover, better understand and share this important part of our Canadian cultural heritage, both organizations are now inviting creators from all 10 provinces and 3 territories to submit applications by Monday, October 31st, 2022. Selected projects will be completed during Riopelle’s centenary year in 2023.

This large-scale cultural mediation program, one of the most extensive ever put in place in Canada, is made possible thanks to the generous support from the Government of Canada.


Projects in Every Province and Territory

Through this Canada-wide call for projects, the Dialogues program intends to mobilize artists, cultural workers, organizations and local communities to create public works of art (e.g., murals, sculptures, visual works, music, literary creations, etc.), participatory workshops or other initiatives based on cultural mediation, arts and cultural education, and artistic co-creation to generate a dialogue between Riopelle’s Oeuvre and Canadian history, culture and heritage.

In 2022 and 2023, the program will offer financial support up to $30,000 per selected project, as well as assistance to all 13 projects which will take shape from sea to sea during the centenary year.

Interested artists and organizations can submit their proposals by Monday, October 31st, 2022, at 11:59PM (Eastern Time).
