Opportunity for Indigenous Artists in Your Community

Post to share on Facebook, eNewsletter or Website:aill-indigenous-2017-apply.jpg

Calling Indigenous Artists in BC!  Are you an Indigenous artist interested in working with schools? Would you like to inspire curiosity and learning in young people across the province through your creative practice? Do you want to learn how to integrate the BC curriculum and help activate learning in classrooms through art?

Indigenous artists in BC working in all disciplines—visual arts, music, dance, theatre, storytelling and more—are invited to apply to take part in the Arts Integration Learning Lab: Indigenous Artists Edition, a learning series designed to identify the complex relationship between education and decolonization through the perspectives of Indigenous artists.

The cost for artists selected to participate is fully subsidized, covering tuition, program materials and lunch. A limited number of travel and accommodation grants are also available. This opportunity is made possible through funding support from BC Arts Council and the Government of British Columbia’s Creative Futures program.

The Arts Integration Learning Lab: Indigenous Artists Edition will be presented by ArtStarts in Schools and IndigenEYEZ on October 23-27, 2017. Apply by September 5, 2017 at http://artstarts.com/aill-indigenous

 

Apply by September 5 for Arts Integration Learning Lab: Indigenous Artists Edition

ArtStarts has just announced an opportunity that I think will be of interest to artists in your community.

Indigenous artists in BC working in all disciplines
—visual arts, music, dance, theatre, storytelling and more—are invited to apply to take part in the Arts Integration Learning Lab: Indigenous Artists Edition, a learning series designed to identify the complex relationship between education and decolonization through the perspectives of Indigenous artists.

This event is presented by ArtStarts in Schools, a charitable organization that seeks to expand the role of arts in education for the benefit of BC’s young people. For this learning series, ArtStarts has partnered with IndigenEYEZ, a creative facilitation organization with a focus on strengthening four essential relationships—with self, with others, with nature and with culture—through an Indigenous lens.

The cost for artists selected to participate is fully subsidized, covering tuition, program materials and lunch. A limited number of travel and accommodation grants are also available. This opportunity is made possible through funding support from BC Arts Council and the Government of British Columbia’s Creative Futures program.

You can learn more at http://artstarts.com/aill-indigenous or get in touch with Elfred Matining, Program Manager, at 604-336-0626 ext 106 or infusion@artstarts.com

Can you please help spread the word to artists in your community who may be interested in applying?

I’ve included a few sample posts below so you can quickly share this opportunity via your social media networks, website or newsletter. I’ve also attached an image and info sheet if that helps.

I really appreciate any help you can provide to reach out to local artists!
