Papergirl Calgary is Gearing up! only 11 days left for submissions!

Time is upon us, we are soooooo looking forward to the exhibition and giftervention, only 11 days left for submissions! We have a snappy calendar of events for all the fun stuff we are going to be doing, workshops, crafting bike bling, exhibiting, printing, gifting, it's gonna be amazing!

Come and join the fun if you are in Calgary this August! We would love to see you!

What's that you say? Giftervention?


An Art intervention that involves Gifting an anonymous stranger with a piece of art.

The action of gifterventing has been performed over many years, but it really only came into its own when the Art Event Papergirl Berlin started random gifterventions, taking art out of the galleries and into the streets. (2005)

Say it in a sentence: 
I can't wait till tomorrow, the giftervention at the park is going to be so damn amazing!
This term is now officially in the Urban Dictionary, my 'giftervention' back to Papergirl Berlin for starting this Kick-Ass project! Thanks  This definition is for you Aisha Ronniger!

Make It Workshop at the Roundhouse in Vancouver  
Monday, 23 July 2012  from 19:00 - 23:00

  • Do you love making art but are having a hard time figuring out how to get it out into the world? Does the thought of figuring out how to promote yourself make you want to curl up in a corner and cry? It doesn't have to be like this, we promise! Join us for our first Papergirl Vancouver workshop hosted by Jenna Herbut of Make it Productions. In the true nature of Papergirl's philosophy, the Art of Giving Art, Jenna has graciously donated her time to not only help artists learn more about getting their work out there into the world, but to also help us raise some money so we can continue to put on Papergirl next year!

    Jenna is going to teach you some basic concepts and techniques that will help you get your art and your name out there. It is going to be fun and way easier than you have ever imagined.
