Mohkinstsis and Gathering Spaces Today

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.
Making Treaty 7 and Arts Commons Presents Mohkinstsis and Gathering Spaces Today, call for submissions for Indigenous artists.

Deadline: Monday, May 27, 2019

Making Treaty 7 and Arts Commons are pleased to announce the launch of a new visual arts residency for Indigenous artists that addresses our common goal of creating space to celebrate and centre Indigenous artistic identity and knowledge through mentorship and discussion, artistic creation, exhibition, and knowledge sharing with the broader community. We are seeking two (2) Indigenous artists for this residency. Artist fee and material fees for exhibition and residency are provided.


We are seeking two (2) artists who are:

  • Indigenous to Treaty 7 Nation(s) and/or reside in the traditional territories of the Treaty 7 Nations.
  • A professional artist.
  • A professional artist is an individual who is committed to their own artistic vision and practice.
  • Has training in their field, however this training does not need to be from a recognized post-secondary institution—mentorship, apprenticeship, and traditional ways of knowing and learning are all acceptable forms of training.

We encourage all interested artists to please call or email with their questions, comments or concerns. We want to hear from you.
