The City of Waterloo invites professional artists to submit proposals for a community feast table as a work of functional public art in Mary Allen Park. Individuals or teams of artists are welcome to apply.

The table will be used by neighbourhood residents, visitors and other members of the community for significant gatherings and casual use through all seasons. It will be a welcoming place to gather, celebrate and connect with other members of the community. The artwork will provide a link to the history or story of the site or reflect themes identified through consultation with the community.
