Time: All Day
Indigenous Curatorial Residency
CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
DEADLINE: January 30, 2021
The Curatorial Residency at Hamilton Artists Inc. (the Inc.) is a new program for First Nations, Métis and Inuit curators at all stages of their careers. Running every two years, this program cultivates opportunities for Indigenous practitioners to grow their practice through long-term support. The curator will spend 18 months in residence, culminating in an exhibition in summer 2022. February 2021 – August 2022
As an artist-run centre, the Inc. is committed to providing a space for creative exploration, experimentation, and risk-taking. This residency program is designed to be flexible in order to meet the curator’s needs and goals at this moment in their career. The curator will be supported in pursuing expansive research on a project of their choice from the idea phase to public presentation. The curator will receive access to resources, mentors (selected by them), workshops, and connections to enable them to accomplish their own goals set for the residency.
This residency is for First Nations, Métis and Inuit curators, or those interested in becoming a curator. No academic training or past curatorial experience is required. We will prioritize applicants who are based in or have a connection to this territory—the lands of the Anishnaabeg and Haudenosaunee, protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt covenant.
We recognize that Indigeneity is complex and multifaceted, and affected by race, disability, gender, sexuality, class, and many other factors. We encourage people with intersecting identities to apply.
