The Chiefs of Ontario Host Committee will be hosting the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) 42nd Annual General Assembly in Toronto in July 2021 and is currently accepting original Indigenous artwork to be submitted. Artwork will be used for materials by the Chiefs of Ontario Host Committee and the AFN in promoting the assembly. We are seeking artwork that supports and promotes First Nations culture in Ontario.

In 2021, the AFN will be holding the National Chief Elections. The Host Committee has created an agenda of social/cultural programming that will coincide with the AFN Annual General Assembly. The programming will be a cultural mosaic of First Nations in Ontario which acknowledges and celebrates First Nations’ resilience and culture.

From the artwork submitted, we will select three pieces that will go to the Assembly of First Nations’ Committee who will make the final selection for the AGA. Once purchased, the artwork will become the sole property of the Assembly of First Nations for use on advertising posters, flyers, websites, printed materials and various promotional materials. The artwork must translate well into poster format, printed material and promotional material, including clothing.

The deadline for submissions is April 9, 2021. We appreciate all submissions however only the winner will be contacted
