This week I received news that I've been accepted into the Indigenous Visual & Digital Arts Residency at the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity this November!
"Residencies offer structured programs where artists, curators, and other arts professionals are brought together to make work and discuss pertinent themes. Through peer interaction, discussion groups, studio work, formal lectures, and studio visits from world-renowned visiting artists and curators, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and the development of their work."
I look forward to being able to focus on my practice in such a beautiful location, surrounded by a great community of peers. What an opportunity!
This residency is only 2 months away, so the search for funding has begun in earnest. If you would like to support me, Amy has set up a Go Fund Me campaign. Your support, in whatever form, is greatly appreciated. I'm also offering four paintings as rewards for donations. That's your chance to get a great deal on original art (pick up only)!
