Can I still submit my artwork if I don’t want to enter a contest?
We are asking anyone who is interested in submitting their art for the virtual gallery to fill out a “Participant Consent Form” and then submit all artwork by calling your local John Howard Society institutional support line to organize a pickup time; or simply mail your artwork and consent forms directly to us at:
“Pathway to miyo-pimâtisiwin – Virtual Art Gallery”
1801 Toronto Street, Regina, SK, S4M 1M7
Your artwork will be stored safely by Pathway to miyo-pimâtisiwin and can be returned to your family upon request.
We would love to give artists the opportunity to tell their stories or any narrative that goes along with their artwork. Therefore, additional space is given on the Participant Consent Form. Additional pages may be included if space is an issue.
As of August 20, 2021, this contest is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated!
