The Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) is excited to announce a new exhibition which will highlight and celebrate people who use sustainable energy resources and functions on a regular basis. Everyday Sustainable Energy Superheroes will take place January 14th to March 18th, 2017 at the free BMO Open Gallery of the Kamloops Art Gallery (KAG). Public submissions for this show are encouraged and are now being accepted, and can be either two dimensional pieces for hanging on the Open Gallery wall or short videos. Submission Criteria can be found here, and as an attachment below, and the deadline is either June 6 or October 17, 2016, depending on the type of submission.
“We really think it’s important to focus on the amazing work that so many people are doing all around us,” said James Gordon, one of the main exhibition organizers.
“These are trying times with climate change and other sustainability issues, but we are also seeing people make a real difference with the energy choices they make everyday; some of which are ingenious and others, really quite simple. This exhibition celebrates these people, and shares their ideas to inspire others.”
The focus of the exhibition will be on community members who use energy sustainably in household and business practices, for transportation, around choices for food and consumer goods, waste management, and general lifestyle decisions. Besides showcasing the submitted works, the exhibition will feature video interviews of select nominees who go above and beyond in their use of sustainable energy. Nomination details can be found in the Submission Criteria (see attachment below).
The exhibition will debut with a reception at the KAG on January 14, 2017, which will be open to all participants along with friends and family.
