Performing Arts & Indigenous Arts Creation Lab - Spring 2022 | In-Person

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Overview
Creation Lab residencies are designed for performing artists and companies worldwide to develop their new work in one or more Banff Centre studio spaces on the land of Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain. Creation Lab is a partnered initiative of Performing Arts and Indigenous Arts at Banff Centre. The focus of these self-directed residencies is to offer contemplative and creative exploration in performance spaces. This can include experimentation with choreography, improvisations and sight specific areas. Collaborations with Indigenous artists outside of similar accessibility will also be considered. 

In a collegial campus atmosphere of like-minded artists working in and across a range of disciplines, artists are encouraged this season to propose self-sufficient projects that require no in-studio technical labour or equipment support from Banff Centre staff beyond essential room set-up. Companies are encouraged to travel with all personnel required to handle the work.

A limited number of on-stage technical residencies with local crew support are available.

We are offering the following programs concurrently:

What does the program offer?
As a post-secondary learning environment, Banff Centre offers artists a generous, retreat-style space to experiment and take risk with new work in development. Artists can choose to take advantage of feedback from other members of the community on campus, or shut out distraction and create in solitude. All phases of work in progress are welcome, and there is no expected output from the residency.

Banff Centre provides limited production support for these residencies. Additional technical support may be negotiated when possible. Covid-19 protocols are expected to evolve throughout the season.

Who should apply?
We accept project proposals from individual artists, artistic collectives, and companies of all sizes and at all stages of career. Artists with projects that are at various stages of development are encouraged to apply - whether at the conceptual, creation, development, refinement, or redevelopment stage of a new work.

We invite applications from Indigenous performing artists and arts companies (regionally, nationally, and globally), from a variety of disciplines. This may include Indigenous dancers, theatre makers, circus and clowns, provocateurs, disrupters, advocates pushing the boundaries of their artistic practice, experienced artists, Indigenous artists that serve their community and their collaborators in all performing arts disciplines.

Shorter residencies may be available. Please inquire for details.

Please note: International participants are welcome to apply to on-campus programs that start after January 1, 2022. Banff Centre has opted into the Government of Alberta's Restriction Exemption Program; please see our website for full details on COVID-19 protocols and vaccination requirements. 

Program Dates: March 7 - 26, 2022
Application Deadline: November 24, 2022

Eligibility:

Overview
In partnership with Performing Arts, Indigenous Arts Creation Lab residencies are designed for Indigenous Performing Arts artists, collectives or companies with a regional, national and global focus to develop the physical creation phase of their new work on the territory of Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain. The focus of these self-directed residencies is to offer contemplative and creative exploration in performance spaces. This can include experimentation with choreography, improvisations and sight specific areas. Collaborations with Indigenous artists outside of similar accessibility will also be considered.

In a collegial campus atmosphere of like-minded artists working in and across a range of disciplines, artists are encouraged this season to propose self-sufficient projects that require no in-studio technical labour or equipment support from Banff Centre staff beyond essential room set-up. Companies are encouraged to travel with all personnel required to handle the work.

A limited number of on-stage technical residencies with local crew support will be available in the Spring 2022 block. 

Artists may apply to reside for one, two or three weeks, and may indicate their preferred dates. Demand is typically high for this residency, and therefore the ability to consider three-week visits, particularly for larger companies, is limited.

What does the program offer?
As a post-secondary learning environment, Banff Centre offers artists a generous, retreat-style space to experiment and take risk with new work in development. Artists can choose to take advantage of feedback from other members of the community on campus, or shut out distraction and create in solitude. All phases of work in progress are welcome, and there is no expected output from the residency.

This residency offers a range of workspaces and facilities depending on participants' needs and availability, typically in Banff Centre’s Music & Sound Building, the Performing Arts and Learning Complex, and/or the Kinnear Centre for Creativity & innovation. 

Banff Centre provides limited production support for these residencies. Additional technical support may be negotiated when possible. Covid-19 protocols are expected to evolve throughout the season.

Who should apply?
We invite applications from Indigenous performing artists and arts companies (regionally, nationally, and globally), from a variety of disciplines.

Indigenous Arts | Write Over Here - Fall 2021

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Overview
This 3-week self-directed Indigenous Arts residency will invite writers to engage in an active writing program, both in their community and on the Banff Centre campus. Online gatherings during the community phase will be scheduled to bring everyone together to connect and share.

Participants will be able to choose to participate either online from their community or on campus for the first two weeks.  The final week will see all participants meeting on campus to share readings and have deeper discussions of their process. Faculty will engage all writers throughout their time, as needed and scheduled, while this space allows for writers to put the time aside in their own capacity but still engage in their writing practice.

What Does the Program Offer?
This residency offers writers a combination of lectures from faculty, open social spaces to connect, open spaces to review and provide feedback to each other's work, faculty office hours and readings. 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 at Banff Centre.

Who Should Apply?
This program welcomes Indigenous writers from across Canada. 

Please note: As we re-open campus and welcome artists back to programming in a safe and mindful way, we have made the difficult decision to restrict recruitment for on-campus programs to those currently residing in Canada. We continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to the future relaxation of travel measures that will allow us to welcome international artists once again.  

Please note that as of 1st September, our application fee will revert to the pre-pandemic level of $65.  Applications received on or before 31st August will be charged at $25.

          *Financial Aid of 100% is available for this program. 

Program Dates: October 11 - 29, 2021
Application Deadline: September 15, 2021
