Started in Berlin and in the style of American paper-boys, Papergirl consists of distributing rolled art pieces by bicycle to random passers-by.
In their words: “Art should be accessible to everyone. That is the spirit behind Papergirl, the pedal-powered and volunteer ridden project that combines art, philanthropy, and bikes!”
A redefinition of street art, Papergirls’ volunteer cyclists criss cross the city delivering art directly into the hands of perfect strangers all over the world and soon, the city of Vancouver! From August 22nd to 27th, 2011, the Roundhouse Community Center will display an assortment of donated artworks before the art is bundled up and given away on the street.
Papergirl Vancouver is currently accepting original 2D artwork for submission. Art must be flexible (it will be rolled), and the shortest side must be smaller then 1m. You may enter as many pieces as you like.
There are two ways to submit your work – Drop off your art in person at the Roundhouse front desk by August 15, 2011 or mail your entries to:
