City of Vancouver Engineering Artist in Residence


In 2018-2020 Germaine Koh is serving as the City of Vancouver's first Engineering Artist in Residence.

"The Artist-in-Residence works collaboratively with the City’s Engineering team to explore the City’s engineering works, with a specific focus on opportunities for public art within the City’s operations, facilities, and capital construction projects. The Artist is also encouraged to identify opportunities for temporary and future artworks that interact with ideas and practices of city planning, infrastructural development, engineering operations, and sustainability. Other important contexts are the city goals of reconciliation and the Greenest City Action Plan."
