Potent[ial] Port Lands Project

Call for Event Proposals

ACC Futures is seeking big, bold thinkers to propose event ideas. Events should be designed to invite audiences to reimagine the Port Lands as future space for community, reconciliation, and innovation.  

We are looking for 3 innovative, high-profile, public events that will take place on-site anytime between July and October 2022 and attract a strong turnout from Akwesasne, Cornwall, and beyond. Applicants may submit ideas for a single event or all three. 

The special events must be free to the public and may run for a length of time determined by the applicant—from one day up to one week. Events should take place in September 2022.

Possibilities for events can be dialogical, interactive, and/or productive. 

The starting budget for each event is $15,000 but additional sponsorships and in-kind donations may be solicited. Note: The Port Lands will also consider a singular event with a $45,000 budget if one proposed idea is most innovative and exciting.

Organizers are encouraged to collaborate with other local groups with respect to funding and execution of the event.   

Proposals must include a description of the planned event, a listing of all sponsoring groups, an outline of event coordination experience, and a projected budget.  

Proposal-related questions may be directed to: info@accfutures.ca
