Keeping it Living seeks artists

Project Watershed's annual art competition putting out the call

Project Watershed is inviting you to join us in inspiring the Comox Valley to experience the estuary by submitting a piece of your work in our sixth annual Keeping it Living art competition and silent auction.

Keeping it Living is an art and literature awareness and fundraising campaign to give everyone the opportunity to contribute to the preservation and restoration of the K’ómoks Estuary.

The year’s title “Then, Now and Future” is to inspire the artist to capture their version of the past, present and future of the estuary… or all three. And as in every year the theme encompasses “all things estuary”, and is wide open to the whole ecosystem which extends into the Georgia Strait.

Nationally renowned First Nations artist Andy Everson will be creating a unique image for this year’s campaign. Join Andy in the creation of art inspired by our one-of-a-kind estuary.

All types of art including (but not limited to) painting, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, photography and glass are encouraged.
