Call for Proposals City of Peterborough —UN Peacekeepers Monument

Call for Proposals City of Peterborough —UN Peacekeepers Monument

Date: 
Monday, Apr 3rd, 2017 (All day)
Call for Proposals
City of Peterborough
—UN Peacekeepers Monument
 
The City of Peterborough invites Canadian artists and design teams to submit their credentials, examples of prior experience and a conceptual approach for a public art competition to create the UN Peacekeepers Monument in the City's new Urban Park.

This is a two-stage national call open to professional artists and designers who are permanent residents of Canada.

DEADLINE: Monday, April 3, 2017

PROJECT BACKGROUND AND INTENT

The City of Peterborough's Public Art Program helps to create culturally enriched public spaces that are not only safe and comfortable, but also foster a sense of place and an emotional attachment to Peterborough's urban and natural environment.

This initiative is being developed in partnership with and sponsored by the Peterborough chapter of the UN Peacekeepers Association (CAVUNP). Since 1947 United Nations Forces have performed peacekeeping duties worldwide. Through a variety of means the CAVUNP endeavours to inform the public about the role of peacekeeping and to honour and express gratitude for sacrifices made in the service of peace.

The UN Peacekeepers Monument Project will support innovative proposals from both emerging and established artists working in a range of disciplines and media. Beyond improving the appearance of the chosen location, the artwork should in some manner consider the community in which it will be installed, the spirit of peacekeeping, and the role that Canada plays in bringing peace to the world.

LOCATION

The site of City of Peterborough's new Urban Park is in central downtown in a zone which transitions from the commercial downtown to residential. The site is framed by Charlotte, Aylmer, King and Louis Streets.

The proposed location of the UN Peacekeepers monument is a nine-meter square area at the north end of the park, on lands currently occupied by the Louis Street municipal parking lot. More Information about the park's key features and proposed programming can be found HERE.

The final design of the park, including confirmation of the artwork's location on the site will be available for Stage II invitees. The expected completion of the park and the monument is late 2018.

BUDGET

Total project budget: $95,000

ELIGIBILITY

This is a two-stage national call open to professional artists and designers who are permanent residents of Canada. The design team leader must be an accomplished artist or designer partnered with a professional architect or landscape architect, engineer fabricators and constructors able to complete the installation.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Please note the clip you would prefer the jury view by including time marks in the documentation list.

Applications that do not adhere to these criteria or are incomplete will be disqualified. All applicants will be notified with the jury's Stage I decision by late April.

Applicants invited to Stage II of the competition will be expected to provide a maquette, and a detailed project budget outlining expenses including but not limited to: artist fees, materials, equipment, fabrication, installation, travel and accommodation costs and all applicable taxes. More details will be provided to Stage II invitees.

The jury will choose a finalist whose work and experience best suits the scope of this project, and who has demonstrated an ability to realize a public artwork appropriate to the park. In addition to artistic merit and viability, proposals will be judged in relation to the City of Peterborough's Municipal Cultural Plan and Public Art Initiative and the CAVUNP's aims and ideals.

Facilitator: Mark W. Finnan
 
Mark has practiced and taught meditation for many years to people of all walks of life.
In addition to his training in meditation, his background as an actor and writer has given him insight
into the creative benefits of attuning to a place of peace and stillness within the self. While he presents meditation in a generic form as a means of stress reduction and health enhancement, he encourages individuals to adapt the process to conform to their own ideologies, philosophical or religious, as needed.
 
His class covers: Self-activated physical relaxation, degrees of relaxation, breathing exercises to aid relaxation, mental focusing exercises, focusing on peace inducing imagery, personal choices, gaining 
and retaining conscious awareness of self-created peaceful inner state, relating the achieved inner state to outer personal circumstances, re-energizing the body to its normal functioning, and stretching exercises.

Special Bulletin - Update on Demolition of The Pigs Ear and The Black Horse Pub

Special Bulletin - Update on Demolition of The Pigs Ear and The Black Horse Pub

Date: 
Monday, Apr 3rd, 2017 - 6:30 pm

Special Bulletin - Update

We are hearing from our members and thought we would share a letter they wrote here. The letter expresses concern over the historical designation and preservation of our downtown historical structures the Pig's Ear Tavern and The Black Horse Pub. We urge you to continue to share your letters with us. Council meeting details are below. Please consider attending.

 
Hello Henry (Clarke) & Don (Vassiliadis),
As my members of Council for our ward, I am writing to you with my growing concern about the proposed development on George Street.  I believe that Henry will remember that I was municipal planner in the city's planning department during the 1970's and 1980's – at a time when Peterborough was recognized for its foresight in maintaining the heritage and viability of its downtown. 

While many other communities were promoting urban sprawl and encouraging strip development to the deterrent of their downtowns, Peterborough recognized the important role that its downtown should play in the well-being of the community.  With much determination by advisors such as PACAC, new development was encouraged and built around its heritage features such as Market Hall. 

I am delighted that we are proposing to intensify the downtown and develop housing.  This will allow people to walk to work, events and shopping.  This will promote our community as a walkable place to live and reduce the reliance on cars.   It will reduce urban sprawl that has reduced our food-producing lands. 

We have an amazing opportunity to build a housing complex that fits into the heritage landscape that we have inherited.  We have the chance to build a new downtown that has character, culture and a sense of class and promotes sustainability.

As a planner, I urge you to reconsider allowing the 2 heritage buildings to be totally demolished.  As someone who has worked to build a strong community that is diverse, I ask that you take this opportunity to provide direction to the proposed developer and the proposed development and ensure that there is preservation of permanency and heritage.   

Preservation attaches people to their community – and while it does not have to be the entire building that is maintained, preservation of a portion of the architecture gives the message that we want to maintain/build a sustainable community.  It is one that values cultural and heritage tourism. 

My understanding is that the developer was instructed to work with the planning department but there was no instruction to work with the heritage preservation office or PACAC. This speaks to the fact that the City should be developing a standard design for infilling in the downtown that promotes infilling but maintains the heritage and culture of the downtown. 

At a time when Peterborough is recognized for its preservation of its heritage and sustaining its downtown, tearing down 2 heritage buildings means that we are building a downtown that looks like any other city (such as Oshawa) that is merely urban and lacks style, sophistication or elegance.  (Perhaps we should be looking to our neighbours in Port Hope and Cobourg for examples of how to make new structures conform to the heritage architectural integrity that is needed to make the building look as if it belongs.) 

I look forward to hearing of a positive outcome. 
Dawn Berry Merriam, Hon. B.A., M.A.
Please take the time to read this article, contact your City Councillor and let them know what you think. City Council will meet to discuss this on Monday April 3rd at 6:30 pm. You can contact the City Clerk's office @ 705 742 7777, if you would like to speak to Council on this matter.

Many thanks.

Learning Exchange Sessions

Learning Exchange Sessions

Date: 
Friday, Apr 7th, 2017 - 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

We are pleased to share with you the beginning of the Righting Relations: Adult Education for Social Change Learning Exchange Sessions for the Southern Ontario Circle! We are hosting a series of four workshops over the course of this year for practitioners of transformative learning for social change with immigrant and refugee adults. Please join us for the first of these sessions on Community Organizing for Social Change, on Friday, April 7th, 2017. This session will explore popular education tools to support effective social change initiatives with the immigrant and refugee communities we work with, promoting active participation in social movement building to shape their own futures.
 
Please join us April 7th from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm at Social Planning Toronto - 2 Carlton St. Suite 1001.
You are an asset to this conversation!



The Righting Relations Southern Ontario Circle is a growing network of adult educators who are committed to using popular education/transformative learning with immigrant and refugee communities to empower critical reflection and action toward social and economic justice. This exciting journey started in June 2016 when Righting Relations: Adult Education for Social Change hosted a Day-Long Reflection Journey in Toronto with over 60 practitioners of popular education in Southern Ontario to begin the building of this network.  We give thanks to the skillful facilitation by Creating Realities on that day, and remember the late Tammy Nielson with fondness and respect.

Between July and November 2016, ten adult educators, harvested the collective wisdom of the Day-Long Reflection Journey and mapped out a year-long learning journey to strengthen our capacity as adult educators working for meaningful social change. 

 

Over the course of this year, the Southern Ontario Circle will design and host four learning exchange sessions and disseminate four podcasts on the following broad themes:


1) Community Organizing for Social Change
2) Decolonization
3) Healing and Wellness
4) Global Justice, Labour and Human Rights
 
Through these learning exchange sessions, we hope to promote a province-wide conversation and calls to action on what it means to be an immigrant settler on this land, to understand more deeply the colonial history of migration, the need to build bridges of understanding and solidarity between Immigrant, Refugee and Indigenous communities, the effective route to move towards decolonization and live in right relation on this land, and, among others, the effective way to mobilize our communities while taking care of our health and wellness.

We invite you to join us on this learning journey! Please RSVP for the first learning session on Community Organizing for Social Change by Friday March 31st, 2017 by emailing centralhub@rightingrelations.org
 
If you have any accessibility needs or require communication supports, please let us know

In addition, please check out our learning resources available copyleft for change-makers using transformative learning process with communities, and please feel free to share with other practitioners of this work.

In addition to his training in meditation, his background as an actor and writer has given him insight
into the creative benefits of attuning to a place of peace and stillness within the self. While he presents meditation in a generic form as a means of stress reduction and health enhancement, he encourages individuals to adapt the process to conform to their own ideologies, philosophical or religious, as needed.
 
His class covers: Self-activated physical relaxation, degrees of relaxation, breathing exercises to aid relaxation, mental focusing exercises, focusing on peace inducing imagery, personal choices, gaining 
and retaining conscious awareness of self-created peaceful inner state, relating the achieved inner state to outer personal circumstances, re-energizing the body to its normal functioning, and stretching exercises.

      This excellent local film from Curve Lake First Nation examines the unique,
      proud history of the Michi Saagiig (Mississauga) of the Curve Lake First

      controversial 1923 Williams Treaties, and Curve Lake's development to the

      2005 to a "new energy age" featuring tar sand development, fracking,
     mega pipeline projects, and the subsequently growing source of greenhouse
     gas emissions.
