About the Project

WHAT IS PAPERGIRL?

Papergirl is an art project from Berlin (http://papergirl-berlin.de/) that has grown into a worldwide art distribution phenomenon.

Art should be accessible to everyone. That's the spirit behind Papergirl: a pedal-powered, volunteer based, community art project.

Papergirl redefines “street-art”, questioning where value and meaning lies in art: within the object itself, within its symbolic narrative, its economic prowess or its historical context.

What happens in a Papergirl project?

-A call for 2D artworks is made to the local community (artwork must be able to be rolled for distribution, the longest side measuring no larger than 1 metre. Thinking of submitting work in a non-traditional 2D format? We're flexible, send us an email at papergirlcalgary@gmail.com, we'll let you know if it's possible).

-Art is collected & subsequently, exhibited

-Post-exhibition all works are rolled up, and delivered by Papergirls and boys on bikes to the unsuspecting public, in a mass giftervention

RESULTS OF PAPERGIRL?

Artists gain the opportunity to exhibit and have their work given to a new collector. Papergirls get great exercise & smiles due to their hard delivery work. Volunteers get the chance to work with fellow artists, and get involved in their local community.

It’s Papergirl: the art of giving away art.
