City of Regina: Indigenous Artist in Residence Call Open for 2023
March 22, 2023
The City of Regina, located on Treaty 4 land, is pleased to announce the second annual Indigenous Artist in Residence Program is now open for submissions.
This program creates a part-time residency for an Indigenous artist to explore their practice, facilitate free and accessible community engagement, and create work(s) of art to be included within the City’s Civic Art Collection. The residency celebrates and amplifies the voices of Indigenous artists and the Indigenous artistic and cultural presence in the community.
The 2023 theme will continue to explore “Urban Indigeneity.” The artist may work in any medium including but not limited to: 2D, 3D, Indigenous traditional arts, dance, music, spoken or written word, public art or installation. As part of the residency, the artist will design public engagement and outreach activities according to their individual artistic practice. These activities could include community projects, workshops and artist talks.
The Indigenous Artist in Residence program demonstrates the City’s ongoing commitment to the representation and visibility of Indigenous artists, and to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action.
This opportunity is open to First Nations, Métis, or Inuit people residing full-time in Regina during the residency, from June to October 2023. The deadline to submit proposals is April 24, 2023, at 4 p.m.
