Dec 08, 2017 BENCHmark 2018 Call For Proposals Now Open!

The Winnipeg Trails Association and Storefront Manitoba invite design teams to submit proposals for a permanent bench to be located along the Pandora Pathway. We are asking you to put your skills to work and challenge the concept of a ‘common’ bench. We are looking for an intervention that has the power to stop people in their tracks and provide a place to wait, rest, read and more.

This Call for Submissions is open to teams and individuals consisting of designers, architects, landscape architects, and / or artists. Individuals may be students, interns, or practitioners. Multiple submissions are permitted. Deadline is Thursday, February 1st, 2018.

About Winter Gardens:

Winter Garden 2018 will see several new temporary public art installations in downtown Brandon, Manitoba. Artists will have an opportunity to examine and propose responses to the idea of winter garden, while transforming a public space in an original way. The concept of a winter garden is a space in‐flux, in constant transformation and change. Winter Garden encourages community members to engage with their city and imagine possibilities for public art. The temporary outdoor installations and event act as a vehicle to bring community members together and spark dialogue.
