Indigenous Place Keeping

Programming and Art Exhibit

Update: The deadline for this opportunity has been extended to September 29, 2023, 4:30pm MT.

Two opportunities to highlight your work though The City of Calgary’s Indigenous Place Keeping program.

The Indigenous Place Keeping program showcases a variety of cultural programming and traditional and contemporary works of art by Indigenous artists in Calgary’s municipal building. The program supports artists, performers, curators and academics of all disciplines at any stage in their careers. It is open to all Treaty 7, Métis Nation Region 3, urban Calgarian Indigenous and Indigenous people from elsewhere that currently make Calgary their home.

We are inviting Indigenous individuals or teams to propose educational presentations, cultural workshops and performances such as dance, music, art, writing and poetry. Events and activities will take place between September and December 2023.

We are also looking for existing artworks by Indigenous artists for a paid exhibit from October 2023 to March 2024. Artworks of all disciplines are welcome including digital, 2-dimensional works, performance, video/sound installation, literary and small sculptural art.
