Overview

The Archives Practicum program is designed for new archivists with an interest in artistic, multimedia, and/or corporate records. This hands-on experience allows new professionals to gain skills and learn from Banff Centre’s Archivist.

The Archivist will mentor the participant in an area of interest such as digitization and digital archiving, arrangement and description, records management, or reference and outreach. The participant will also receive a general overview of the activities of an Archives and Records Management Centre, with introductions to all key aspects of archival practice.

What does the program offer?

This program offers an introduction to archival practice, and particularly one with large artistic, multimedia, and digital holdings. Practical experience may involve accessioning and describing records (which may be artistic and/or administrative in nature), or identifying and implementing best practices regarding preservation and digitization of audio-visual materials. These projects will provide practical experience in the main areas of the archival profession. 

Learning opportunities may also arise through attendance at lectures, workshops, and events related to arts programming at Banff Centre. Participants will also have the opportunity to focus on and conduct personal research activities as outlined in their learning objectives and project proposal.

Who should apply?

Practicum placements are appropriate for recent graduates of Master of Archival Studies (MAS) programs or Master in Library and Information Science (MLIS) programs, with an interest in archival work.

Kinship Medicines | Indigenous Arts Program

Overview

Kinship Medicines is a thematic residency for queer, trans, and two-spirited Indigenous writers and visual artists who are enacting kinship ethics in their practices, particularly around discussions of gender, sex, and the queer-trans Indigenous futures movement.

This residency focuses on the discursive spark shared between queer, trans, and two spirited Indigenous visual artists and writers by focusing on conversation, collaboration, and building creative kinship between a cohort of writers who think alongside artists, whether it be through curatorial writing or literary form,  and a cohort of studio artists. 

Kinship Medicines offers a space for writers and visual artists to grow their practices around the theme of kinship—which encompasses a wide range of spaces and ideas, from BDSM to romantic friendship—as an ethic, method, and methodology for making art.

What does the program offer?

The structure of the residency consists of seminars centered around the theme. Additionally, time and space will be given for the participants to engage with their own discipline and practices in relation to the residency theme through studio practice.

Writers and visual artists will have their own studio in Glyde Hall with access to the visual art’s production facilities.

Who should apply?

This program is for global indigenous visual artists or writers who are queer, trans, or two-spirited.

This is the first artistic residency of its kind internationally that makes space specifically for queer, trans and two-spirited Indigenous peoples; and for discussion about the creative and discursive relationship between Indigenous artists and writers.

Dates: April 20 - May 15, 2020

 

Prizes Details: 

*Participants accepted to the program will be eligible for up to 100% scholarship to cover the program fee.

The program fee includes a single room and the Full Flex Meal Plan at Banff Centre. Travel to and from Banff Centre is the responsibility of participants.

Banff International Curatorial Institute Fellowship Fall 2020

Program Overview

The Banff International Curatorial Institute (BICI) Fellowship supports established curators, arts writers, cultural critics, and researchers in focusing deeply on the continued development of their work. The program allows for self-directed research over an extended period of 12 weeks within the creative and intellectually stimulating environment of Visual Arts. Participants are selected by an international jury for this unique, fully-scholarshipped program.

In addition to focusing on their own practice, participants will engage with each other as well as artists-in-residence in Visual Arts programs—meet with them to grow their networks and expand their research, visit studios or hold office hours, join reading groups, share knowledge through presenting research in progress, as well as engage with Banff Centre’s curatorial and artistic staff. The BICI Fellowship coincides with the Banff Visual Artist Fellowship, and participants in both programs are encouraged to work closely together.

While in residence participants may work on the continuation of an existing project, the early development of a substantial new project, create work towards a confirmed external publication or exhibition, or conduct research involving BICI publications and Banff Centre’s permanent collection and archives. Projects and research that are timely, socially relevant, and of high artistic merit will be considered as well as participants who are generous and willing to engage with the creative community.

What does the program offer?

This program provides an extended period of time for writers, curators, and researchers to develop non-studio based work and pursue critical research.  Scheduled programming is light to allow for self-directed project development, and opportunities to connect and collaborate. 

Participants can attend talks and presentations by faculty and guests of Visual Arts residency programs and Walter Phillips Gallery, and expand networks through connecting with artists from around the world.

Participants will have a private office that is accessible 24 hours a day in which to work.

What length of residency is available?

This program requires a full time commitment with the understanding that absences will be minimal. Alternative dates cannot be considered.

Who should apply?

This program is open to mid- to- senior-level curators, arts writers, cultural critics, and researchers exploring original topics within visual arts.

Applicants should have an established exhibition/publication record, have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. 

Dates: September 14 - December 04, 2020

 

Prizes Details: 

*Financial Aid up to 100% covering tuition, light flex meal plan, and single on-campus accommodation is available (travel and other expenses are not eligible).
