Don't forget to submit your entry for this year's Dumpster Project! You'll have the chance to participate in a live art event in which 6-12 dumpsters will be transformed into public art. 

The Arts Station in partnership with The City of Fernie is pleased to announce a Call for Entry for the 5th Annual; ‘Out of the Box: A Dumpster Art Project’. Out of the Box is a project in which 6-12 commercial trash and recycling dumpsters are transformed into works of public art by regional artists. The dumpsters will be painted in a live art event from 4-9pm on June 30th, with live music and a bar in Station Square.

We need you! If you are an artist or community group and would like to transform a dumpster, download an application form below and read up on how to enter. The painted dumpsters in and around Fernie bring our colourful community to life and represent the culture of our people – and we need your help to keep this tradition alive! Contact us at the Arts Station if you have any queries. There is a $500 prize for the People’s Choice Award winner!
