LUMINOUS BODIES: Representing the Human Body in Diversity

Program Dates: June 29 – July 13, 2020

Submission Deadline: Feb 24, 2020

 

Luminous Bodies is a two-week residency to create artworks that shed new light on the human body. Its goal is to reinvent and re-present the body in most inclusive and diverse ways. Resident artist talks, gallery tours, visual and textual references, guest artist talks, and regular critiques (individual with Facilitator and group critiques) help uncover how our bodies are culturally and aesthetically constructed, displayed and controlled. Residents work individually or collaboratively to create artworks that reinvent the body through media of their choice, such as photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance, installation, sound, movement, media art, etc. There will be a closing exhibition of artworks created during the residency (if preferred, artists may show in open studio fashion). The essence of Luminous Bodies is about bringing to light heterogeneous bodies. It welcomes people in all walks of life into a creative journey of critical innovation and self-discovery. People with disabilities, people of colour and diverse gender identifications are encouraged to apply.

Artscape Gibraltar Point is an artist retreat nestled against the magnificent natural backdrop of Toronto Island. It offers a distraction-free environment to focus on art creation, and a rich potential for the creation of corporeal artworks amongst its blue-flag beaches (one of them being clothing optional) and natural surroundings of Lake Ontario, forests and gardens filled with flowers, fruit and vegetables. On the island, there are tiny quaint homes, a historic lighthouse, a hobby farm and antique carnival grounds. Cozy up in a furnished studio and bedroom (private or shared), and enjoy amenities such as a fully equipped common kitchen, shared bathrooms, laundry facilities and wireless Internet. AGP is a barrier free and inclusive environment. The Toronto city core is just a 15-minute ferry ride away.

Description: 

Overview

Canada's arts and culture sector is undergoing rapid transformation, creating an exciting opportunity for leaders who are committed to and passionate about strengthening this field. 

Several forces are altering what it means to be an artistic, creative, or cultural organization today, including the changing role of these institutions and initiativeswithin society, an increasing emphasis on equity, a national commitment to truth and reconciliation, and the impact of technology on the way we work and the way we serve our communities.

In this program, you’ll gain the skills and establish the frameworks to navigate the complexity of the Canadian arts and culture sector, and explore leadership roles within the sector. You’ll gain a stronger understanding of who you serve and the systems within which you operate as you build competencies and networks to help you make a lasting impact.

The Cultural Leadership program was developed and is offered in collaboration with Canada’s first Artistic Leadership Development Program at the National Theatre School in Montreal, QC. Significant funding is available, up to full program tuition, meals, and accommodation underwriting. To request financial assistance please see additional information in the How to Apply section, below.

What does the program offer?

Cultural Leadership includes four on-site intensives (three in Banff, one in Montreal) as well as workshops, seminars, and projects that may take place virtually or across Canada. The seven-month program features applied learning, small group work, reflective practice, large group forums, interactive processes, lectures, and case-study analysis. 

The program director and facilitator will be with program participants throughout the year as learning coaches. In addition, for each session and topic area you will be joined by academic guest lecturers and faculty, domain experts, experiential educators, and artists from across disciplines, sectors, and the world.

Cultural Leadership is designed to:    

  • assist a group of leaders in diverse traditional or non-traditional leadership roles to explore and better understand the increasingly complex environment of the Canadian arts and culture sector
  • equip you with the skills and contextual intelligence to navigate the landscape of the sector
  • develop awareness of networks – and build networks – that enable you to succeed

Who should apply?

This program is primarily designed for Canadian arts and culture leaders and/or leaders working in Canada (in traditional and non-traditional leadership roles), as well as leaders working abroad but for Canadian institutions. However, we recognize that all arts leaders are part of an increasingly global system, and international applicants will be considered in respect to building a diverse, broad cohort and network. 

All applicants should be interested in honing and developing a comprehensive set of competencies to prepare them for significant leadership roles in a variety of capacities, including for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, collectives, non-traditional partnerships, and as entrepreneurs.

We are seeking applicants who:

  • have some demonstrated leadership experience, and an ability to recognize opportunities and design and implement solutions
  • are actively pursuing or considering arts and culture leadership opportunities (roles or projects) of increasing scale and complexity
  • are outspoken, active, and recognized advocates within their respective communities
  • are willing to take risks, reimagine possibilities, and are curious and eager to learn
  • approach work and relationships with a spirit of sharing and generosity
  • believe in the role of cultural organizations as civic institutions that foster community growth, development, and wellbeing

Banff Centre Leadership programs integrate the power of the arts, the wisdom of Indigenous practice, and the extraordinary beauty of Banff National Park to prepare and empower the next generation of leaders.
