Indigenous Arts | Writing Over Here: Open Rezidency ONLINE






Write Over Here: Open Rezidency is a three week online self-directed residency, where self-motivated writers are invited to work within their community to engage with faculty to support their practice.  Participants will meet with the faculty team via Zoom for weekly gathering where they cohort will come together to connect, share readings, and have deeper discussions on their process. 

Throughout the residency, faculty will offer one-on-one meetings, as well as workshops that explore different writing practices. Writers will have the opportunity to engage with faculty throughout their time as needed and scheduled, and are encouraged to connect with their peers, as well as continue to engage in their independent writing practice on and offline.

What Does the Program Offer?

Write Over Here: Open Rezidency offers participants the opportunity to focus on tools to help create the time and space to write from home. Writers will deepen their artistry and technical application with Literary mentorship from faculty of various writing genres, create peer relationships and expand their professional networks, and have the opportunity for possible collaborations following their time with at Banff Centre. This is a self-motivated residency and encourages participants to discover best practices to engage and inspire writing to happen at home. 

Who Should Apply?

This residency is an ideal fit for both Indigenous emerging writers, and established writers with a professional writing practice, who are comfortable reading and sharing their original material.

Call for Indigenous artists for permanent sculpture at the Dairy Arts Center

Join us in adopting, calling for, and spreading this practice.” – Honor Native Land: a guide and call to acknowledgment, US Department of Arts & Culture
