Artist in Residence: Indigenous

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

The Calgary Public Library invites applications for the three-month, paid position of Artist in Residence: Indigenous at the new Central Library (NCL) in downtown Calgary for February to April 2019.

This residency aims to recognize the contribution of Indigenous artists, craftspeople, and knowledge keepers to Calgary, and Canada’s, culture. In response to the calls of action in the City of Calgary’s White Goose Flying report, the library seeks to honour Indigenous cultures and to promote intercultural understanding, perspective-taking and communication between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

The artist(s) will be required to take part in an artist talk in the beginning of the residency and, at minimum, two public workshops and/or school programs, all set in collaboration with the library. The artist will determine and hold regular, open studio hours at new Central Library for a minimum of 7.5 hours per week, culminating in a May/June exhibition.

The 439 square foot Artist in Residence studio is available to the artist during opening hours to work on their own projects.

Details on application criteria are in attached artist call. Deadline to apply is January 9, 2019.
