The new Timms Community Centre will serve as a community and cultural hub where residents can come together to access group activities, health and fitness opportunities, public information and community resources. A truly integrated facility, it draws together three primary users – Langley City Hall, Fraser Valley Regional Library and Timms Community Centre – into a single, active and inviting Civic Facility.
Offering programs that will benefit youth, seniors, families, new immigrants and persons with disabilities, Timms Community Centre will attract regular and new visitors, encourage participation and social integration and become a vibrant focus for community pride. It will act as a potential catalyst for future development in the downtown core and will promote the well-being of the citizens of Langley through easily accessible and safe exercise facilities.
Influencing positive health outcomes through active living, we envision this facility as the civic heart of our community – a
go-to-place to meet, engage, connect, learn, celebrate, and be active together.

The objective of this one time 20th Anniversary Placemaker Program Request for Proposals is to celebrate 20 years of temporary public art in Saskatoon.
Deadline: 14 Apr 2015
The Placemaker Program attempts to make contemporary arts more accessible to the public, to raise awareness of the importance and meaning of a place and its relationship with the broader social, cultural and physical environment, and to enhance participation with and highlight the significance of public places in Saskatoon. Artist teams are requested to submit proposals that clearly outline the creative scope of their project. This will involve but is not limited to the following:
- public art activities and creative forms of public engagement which focus on existing public artworks in the designated geographic areas for public art;
- street animation or interpretative responses to the artworks;
- imaginative documentation and cataloguing of the existing artworks; and
- possibly the creation of new experiential public art.
It is important that submissions consider the ways the proposed project can provide the Placemaker Program with some type of concrete documentation or Placemaker Portfolio such as:
- a digital portfolio of the 66 existing public artworks that could be reproduced and edited when needed;
- colour representations or a portfolio of existing works;
- a video of existing works; or
- a creative form of representation of the existing works, perhaps in paper format.
Proposals may offer participatory experiences to make a place more interesting and encourage links between artists, residents, and others; or they can include performance components.
Proposals should outline and synthesize the concept clearly including a timeline for the various public art activities. If a public art activity is intended for a specific location in Saskatoon, for a specific time of the year or for a specific event, please indicate that in the submission. The selected artist team will implement the project from May until mid-December, 2015. A final report summarizing the project activities will be required by the successful team.
All proposals will be considered by the PAAC and one proposal will be selected based on the criteria stated in this RFP. The successful team will be contracted to implement the project and will work closely with the City’s public art team and other relevant stakeholders on feasibility and proposed budget requirements. The lead artist from the team should be identified to act as the main contact between the team and the City of Saskatoon. Suggested teams may draw upon strengths in the following areas:
- Public art
- Art history
- Visual art
- Short video production, film
- Performance art
- Graphic design
- Dance, performance
- Other creative fields
Closing date: Tuesday, April 14, 2015, 2:00pm.
Budget: $55,000 (all-inclusive)
The City of Saskatoon offers one of the most innovative temporary public art programs in Canada.
