The Depot is proud to announce its first anti-poverty arts competition.
We are looking for artists of all disciplines to submit their photos, poetry, collages, or drawings that speak to this year’s theme of inequality/Inclusivity. All submissions will be juried by 3 local artists Carolina Echeverria, Kim Fox and Scott McLeod.
Youth (14-18) category: $100
All artwork must be submitted no later than Friday March 20, 2020. The artwork will be displayed in the Depot spaces and website. This event is hosted in tandem with the United Nations International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. By publicizing the artwork of our winners, our goal is to bring attention to the global and local struggles to live with dignity and justice in the face of poverty in these times of mass inequality.
Open to all! No formal training or CV required!
The NDG Art Hive is happy to provide people with space and materials to complete their piece.

About the Artists
I am an artist, a storyteller and the creator of a powerful relationship with my word. My art is my authentic portraiture of what surrounds me in all its unreasonable possibilities that appear when I stand in front of an empty space. Fears aside, integrity, compassion and inspiration allow me to play in a constant dance with color, visions and connecting threads.
Originally from Toronto, Kim Fox is interested in relationships, societies and the belief systems and power dynamics which influence them.Based in Montreal for most of the last 17 years, this artist is not dedicated to a single technique. Her works, blending modern and “old master” styles are not only the result of years of observation and experimentation, but also reflect her passion for social justice.
G. Scott MacLeod
Scott MacLeod is a Canadian multimedia artist, musician and film director living in NDG. I have tried to define myself in my work through my personal “myth” or what Joseph Campbell refers to as “following one’s bliss” (Campbell, 1990 p. 211). This is a metaphor for pursuing one’s life path through the labyrinth, which for me has been a journey via my learning, art and teaching practices. This journey has given me courage to live, it has made me humble, it has fed and sheltered me, given me a voice and enabled me to do the same for other, through teaching, outreach and fund-raisers. As a result of this work, I have better understood humanity’s place on this planet and have tried to be a positive influence for political and social change.”
