Literary Arts Thematic: Form & Constraint - Spring 2024

Pictured: Program faculty - Daniel Levin Becker (left) and Ian Williams (right). 

Banff Centre’s Form and Constraint Residency focuses on authors of fiction and poetry who use form and constrained forms – rhyme, metrics, Oulipian constraints - to create opportunities for new and unfettered expression.

This self-directed residency offers the opportunity to work away from the concerns of everyday life. Delve deep into your creative project and take advantage of the artistic community of your peers around you. This residency provides opportunities for consultations with mentors, readings, and optional group sessions led by guest mentors that allow creators to explore techniques, aspects, and devices that you may find useful in your practice.

The Artists Forum Juried Arts Competition

THE ARTISTS FORUM invites artists to showcase interpretations for the phrase: Techno-Feudalism. Techno-feudalism, a recently coined term by Greek economist and politician Yanis Vaoufakis, is the transformation of capitalism by tech platforms, done by exploiting the labor force through new technologies.

An example of this concept would be companies hiring people to work from home or through and app, but not paying for employees computers, car repairs, or the infrastructure needed to perform their work.

An expansion on this concept covers the manipulating of media to better serve a political agenda, such as running bots on niche topics that create a sense of divisiveness or political unease.

Kolaj Institute will consider the publication of a chapbook of collage poetry.
