The main purpose of the Community Banner Program is beautification and community identity promotion. Community banners add vibrancy and community spirit throughout our Town.

The 2023 theme for Town of Ladysmith’s Community Public Art Banner Program is “Connecting Ladysmith through the Arts” and highlights art that connects people, promotes peace, creates opportunities to be together, focuses on relationships, and celebrates diversity. 

Ladysmith and Stz’uminus’ natural environment inspires creativity, and community events and gatherings creates the connections we all need to feel a sense of belonging.



The Town of Ladysmith is calling for submissions from artists to be part of this exciting opportunity to create public art that will add to our already vibrant downtown and First Avenue.

We are seeking emerging and professional artists from Ladysmith, Stz’uminus and area to create a street banner design that represents Ladysmith’s small town charm, community life and long, diverse cultural heritage while highlighting the 2023 theme “Connecting Ladysmith through the Arts”.

Submissions will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Monday, January 23rd, 2023. For more information, CLICK HERE for the CALL FOR SUBMISSION.
