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
