City of Regina Launches Indigenous Artist in Residence Program
The City of Regina, located on Treaty 4 land, is pleased to announce the launch of the first annual Indigenous Artist in Residence Program. 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. 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 theme for 2022 will 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.
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 only to First Nations, Métis, or Inuit people residing full-time in Regina during the residency, from July to December 2022. The deadline to submit proposals is June 28, 2022 at 4 p.m. Visit Regina.ca for more information about submitting a proposal.
