2014 International Garden Festival | Pink Punch | Nicholas Croft & Michaela MacLeod | Image: Louise Tanguay
The International Garden Festival, presented at the Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens in the Gaspésie region of Québec, is preparing its 16th edition and is issuing an international call for proposals to select designers who will create the new temporary gardens that will be presented from June 27 to September 27, 2015.
“Buzz” is the operative word guiding the 2015 Festival. The installations selected by the jury will have a special energy and connection to the natural world. The temporary gardens will have a central concept that will be clearly articulated and a degree of interactivity that encourages visitors to enter with enthusiasm and leave with a wish to dialogue and discuss. They will be bold or earthy, complex or very simple. The goal is to intrigue visitors with the unusual or to impress by new ways of presenting what is common. Incorporating vegetables and/or aromatic, medicinal or edible plants, the new gardens will be full of colour and intensity.
This call for proposals is open to all landscape architects, architects, designers and artists from Canada and abroad. For complete information on this call for proposals, those interested should consult the web site: www.projects.internationalgardenfestival.ca
The deadline for the submission of entries is MONDAY NOVEMBER 17, 2014 at 5 pm EST.
