Leading our community toward a healthy future

Oceanside Benchmark – A Community Art Project
CALL FOR ARTISTS – Deadline to submit is March 8


Project Description:

A co-generational public art project designed to encourage community creativity and collaboration!

A wonderful opportunity to showcase local artists, community groups and our welcoming community.

Artists and community groups are invited to design and create their vision of a Welcome Bench and ‘leave their mark on the community’ with Benchmark. The purpose of the welcome bench is to engage visitors and locals and help bring more character and personality to the community. The concept behind Benchmark is to encourage people to sit and contemplate, be at peace and perhaps even be ….’Inspired by the wait’. To unify, connect and inspire creativity in our community.

Thirty benches will be displayed in pre-determined locations in the Oceanside region from Nanoose to Bowser. At the end of the summer, the art benches will be auctioned off as part of a fundraiser for the MAC, TOSH and the Chambers.

We invite you to be …inspired by the wait.
