Laugh Your Arts Off - Artist Call for Entry
Posted: February 15, 2011, 03 :32:02 PM

As part of the fundraising effort LYA04MH is seeking visual artists with a lived-experience connection to mental health. You may have lived experience with a mental health problem yourself, have a close family member or friend with a lived experience, have a life connection to a survivor, or simply have been impacted by mental illness. With 1 in 5 Canadians experiencing mental health problems, not only is it our capacity for resilience that provides hope and optimism, but also our ability to reach out and help others to be creative and productive members of our community.

LYA04MH is seeking two-dimensional or three-dimensional works in any medium that can be displayed on easels and plinths. Works should be provided in a ready-to-hang condition.

Artists are being asked to provide a minimum bid for their works. The minimum bid will serve as the artist fee for each given work, with funds raised beyond that going towards the events overall fundraising target. Artists are welcome to donate the entire sale price but the event organizers do not expect this. A charitable tax receipt will be issued to the artist for the amount raised beyond the minimum bid, or full contribution should the work be wholly donated. Unsold works will be returned to the artist.
It is suggested that works have no greater than a $250.00 minimum bid.
If you need help determining the amount for your work, guidance can be provided once your work has been submitted and accepted.

LYA04MH is seeking 40 pieces in total for the event. Artists wishing to submit works can do so by filling in the "Submission Form"  and bringing works to either The Cottage Studio or The Schizophrenia Society Of Ontario, Hamilton Chapter. See below for details.

The Cottage Studio
Next to St. Paul's Presbyterian Church
70 James Street South
Hamilton Ontario
Open: Monday to Friday, 1 PM to 3 PM
- OR -Schizophrenia Society Of Ontario, Hamilton Chapter
193 James St. S.
Hamilton Ontario
Open: Monday to Friday, 10 AM to 4 PM

The event organizers reserve the right not to display all works submitted due to the nature of the event and space in which it is being held.
Artists whose work is chosen will also be given a complementary ticket to the event and are encouraged to be present during the auction portion of the evening to stimulate conversation about their work and how it relates to their lived-experience with mental health.
