Open call for Indigenous painters who work in portraiture | Deadline: January 21, 2021

Press Release by alan greyeyes

Aboriginal Music Manitoba (AMM), producer of the sākihiwē festival, is asking for Indigenous painters in Canada who work in portraiture to submit information about themselves and samples of their work for a new project that will pay tribute to four Residential School Survivors who live in Manitoba.

With help from Urban Shaman Gallery, each Survivor will have a photograph taken so painters across the Country can create a portrait without leaving their home or studio.

AMM will work with each Survivor to pick a painter for their portrait. A fee of $2,500 CAD (inclusive of supplies, materials, and studio space) will be paid to each painter selected for this project.

The portraits must be 36 inches wide and 48 inches tall.

The submission deadline is Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 11:59 pm CST. The painters will be selected and notified by February 11.

All submissions must be sent online through our google form. Email, fax, and physical submissions will not be accepted.

Submit here: https://forms.gle/N9fXQk1CaArKvw8d8

AMM plans to create up to four prints of each portrait and two banners or pop-up walls. The banners or pop-up walls will be installed at each of the sākihiwē festival’s four sites (Turtle Island Neighbourhood Centre, Central Park, Ka Ni Kanichihk, and Magnus Eliason Recreation Centre) in 2021, 2022, and 2023. AMM also plans to make the portraits available to organizations that have projects or exhibits that pay tribute to Residential School Survivors.

Please email Alan Greyeyes (agreyeyes@gmail.com) if you have any questions.

AMM acknowledges the Government of Canada for their support of our Survivor Portraits project.
