Overview

The Indigenous Storytellers and Spoken Word Residency will push the parameters of traditional storytelling, while retaining the integrity of how stories come to be. Participants will be immersed in in-depth writing practices involving visual, research, and meditative exploration, as well as elder teaching and land based outings. 

With coaching from experienced faculty, participants will collaborate with one another and as a collective to refine stories already told and create new ones to share in a professional capacity.

What does the program offer?

The Indigenous Storytellers and Spoken Word Residency offers the opportunity for Indigenous storytellers from all regions to meet and work with peers. Participants will learn new skills from Indigenous mentors in their respective fields, widen their circles of support, and learn marketing management and presentation skills.

The program will include individual writing time, morning group check-ins, and group and individual feedback. Participants will explore the art of storytelling via improvisation through sound and instrument.

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a workshop, as well as a story lecture and mini showcase. At the end of the residency, participants will showcase their work in a public performance.

Overview

This self-directed residency will explore reconciliation through creative process from an Indigenous perspective in a contemporary world.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn from Indigenous artists, Elders, and community members situated along the honoured cultural trade routes that define the ground we stand on in the Bow Valley. Providing accessible opportunities through reconcili-ACTION with our Indigenous neighbours and settler allies, we will create space within this cultural institution and the Bow Valley to forge new and profound connections.

Rebuilding Summer Cultural Trade Routes will provide safe spaces where participants can learn from those who will bring their art making skills and traditional knowledge to the program. 

What does the program offer?

This intensive program will emphasize collaboration, as well as connections to our Stoney Nakoda and Bow Valley neighbours. Participants will have the opportunity to partner with various groups and spaces within the Bow Valley (from Lake Louise to Morley) to cultivate powerful friendships, allies, and healthy partnerships. Participants will also have the opportunity to develop connections to the land rooted in diverse personal and cultural understandings.

Emerging to professional artists as well as community members who are interested in exploring a new, multidisciplinary avenue into art are encouraged to apply. Traditional makers, musicians, writers, painters, public artists – artists within all disciplines – are welcome. 

The program is open to local artists as well as those not from the Bow Valley area, to have access to Banff Centre’s exceptional facilities and staff, as well as develop relationships with this community.
