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
