This residency is designed for pre-formed collaborative pairs of artists and professionals from disciplines outside the arts, to experimentally work toward big ideas.

These sessions will be accompanied by presentations on research topics specific to each artist-other pair.

09 Towards Language with Greg Staats
Residency Dates: January 6 – February 23, 2010

This residency will examine the idea of an artist as an intermediary between First Nations, Métis, and Inuit languages and contemporary critical practices. Participants who are fluent and non-fluent in traditional languages will examine and share the strategies they use to create and re-create relationships as principles of visual interdisciplinary practice and organization.

Self-directed Residencies

Self-directed residencies are self-guided opportunities where the artist is free to experiment and explore new directions in the production of their work.
