Indigenous art project – an opportunity to share your art

March 13, 2024

Indigenous art has been and continues to be an important means of cultural expression and sharing of culture across generations.

The United Steelworkers union is seeking contributions from Indigenous Steelworkers of print art pieces, created by Indigenous Steelworkers or their kinfolk.

We are looking for a maximum of eight pieces of art to be used to grow and support the work of Indigenous Steelworkers and solidarity with Indigenous communities. This will be on a first-arrival basis.

The art will be used in workplace posters, union materials on Indigenous issues, a digital art display, event art displays and more, with a commitment to display the name and biography of the artist. Each artist will receive $250, plus a kit of USW swag in the mail.

The collection period extends from now until May 15. Interested or have questions? Please contact USW Communications and Political Action Department Leader Shannon Devine at sdevine@usw.ca or 416-938-4402.

Please send a copy of the art to:

USW Communications and Political Action Department
communications@usw.ca

Or

USW Communications and Political Action Department
234 Eglinton Ave E #800
Toronto, ON M4P 1K7

Or drop it off in a marked envelope at a USW District or Sub-district office.
