Artists Rendering Tales Collective Inc. is proud to announce that we are finalists for the City of Richmond Arts Awards in the category of Artistic Innovation for 2019.
The nomination reflects the creative collaborations that we forged on site at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site with our artistic team in 2018 which resulted in the engagement of the public in the development of visual art, performance and video segments that reflect the diversity and history of the many people who have lived and worked at Britannia over the centuries.
Currently in its eleventh year, the annual Richmond Arts Awards recognizes the achievements and contributions to the arts community by Richmond residents, artists, business leaders, educators and change-makers. The list of finalists reflects the vibrancy of Richmond’s established rich cultural scene, as well as the city’s rising stars and emerging creative talent.
The category of Artistic Innovation recognizes an individual artist or organization that is producing visionary creative work, exhibiting innovation within their arts discipline and/or bringing a new cultural experience to the city of Richmond. ARTCi is a finalist along with Ming Yeung, visual artist.
We will attend a celebration and reception on May 14th at City Hall where the winners will be announced.
We are grateful for this honour.
