Indigenous Performing Arts Residency

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Banff Centre is committed to the development, and production of new works in all major performance disciplines and encourages bold collaborations. Indigenous performing arts residencies are designed for Indigenous artists to work on the initial creation phase of a new work in one or more of our studio spaces.

What does the Program Offer?

This residency offers a range of workspaces and facilities depending on participants’ needs and availability. Banff Centre provides limited production support for these residencies. Additional technical support may be negotiated when possible. Partial residencies may be available.

Who Should Apply?

We invite project proposals from individual indigenous artists, Indigenous artistic collectives, and Indigenous companies of all sizes. Artists with projects at various stages of development are encouraged to apply—whether at the conceptual, creation, development, refinement, or redevelopment stage of a new work.
