Kitchener, ON – THEMUSEUM has partnered with Conestoga College’s School of Media and Design to give one lucky student the opportunity to have their creative and artistic talent recognized throughout the Waterloo Region’s arts and culture community. For the second year, the Joan Euler Order of the Creative Mind Award will be given to an outstanding member of the community, and the physical award will be designed by a student in their last year of study.
Interested students have been asked to submit a drawing of their design, along with dimensions and a budget for supplies, to creativemind@THEMUSEUM.ca by February 19, 2014. The winner will be chosen by the Order of the Creative Mind committee and Joe Romer, an Advertising instructor from Conestoga. The design must incorporate THEMUSEUM’s “M” and include space for a small, engraved plaque.
“We are excited to see the designs that these students present,” said David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “They will be showcasing their emerging creativity and talent at an event that celebrates one of the most dynamic and well-known arts and culture supporters from the area.”
The winner will receive a $500 honorarium, a free ticket to the awards event, and formal recognition for their unique design at the event and in all online and physical marketing.
The first award, which was given in 2014, was designed by Meg Leslie and Bernie Rohde from Kwartz Lab.
Nominations for the award are open until February 23, 2015, and the application form can be accessed online at www.THEMUSEUM.ca; tickets for the event are also available online for $50.
