Arts Commission invites artist proposals for TEDxSnoIsleLibraries

The Snohomish County Arts Commission is seeking a Washington state artist or artistic team to create a temporary, interactive-based work that will be featured at TEDxSnoIsleLibraries.

The day-long event presented by Sno-Isle Libraries will be held Nov. 6 at Edmonds Center for the Arts. Its theme, “Creating New Futures,” should be the inspiration for the installation. Performance art will also be considered.

The concept must be “original, bold, innovative and visionary.” The artist or artists whose work is chosen will receive $4,500 to cover all costs associated with the project. The submission deadline is Aug. 17; artists will be notified by Sept. 30.

Detailed information is available at

Sparked by the celebrated TED conferences worldwide, TEDxSnoIsleLibraries will feature talks, demonstrations and performances under 18 minutes each. The program will harness the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading," and focus on the rich innovation, invention and cultural depth of the region.
