The City of Calgary is calling on local artists to submit proposals to display their art at the Boards of Governors of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC) Annual Meeting in Calgary on March 26, 2011.
The IDB supports efforts by Latin America and Caribbean countries to reduce poverty and inequality. Since 1959 the bank has aimed to create development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way. It is the largest source of development financing for Latin America and the Caribbean and has a strong commitment to achieving measurable results, transparency and accountability. IDB is like regular banks but it also provides grants, technical assistance and does research. IDB’s shareholders are 48 member countries, including 26 Latin American and Caribbean borrowing members that have a majority ownership of the IDB.
In late March or early April of each year, the Boards of Governors of the IDB and the IIC hold their Annual Meeting in one of the bank's member countries. This gathering is a forum for discussion among the institutions’ governors. In 2011, the Annual Meeting will take place in Calgary from March 25 -28.
If you are interested in presenting your work, follow the application process available in this PDF and determine if you qualify. The competition closes Tuesday, January 25, 2011. Selected participants will be notified Monday, February 7, 2011 and the installation date is Saturday, March 26, 2011.
