In 2011, an annual residency and exchange partnership began between the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology’s (RMIT) International Artist in Residency Program (iAIR) and the Gushul Studio Residency Program at the University of Lethbridge in Canada. This project was developed to connect and illuminate Indigenous culture and expand ideas of Indigeneity. The residency will provide the successful applicant with a residency in Melbourne and an exhibition in the RMIT Project Space gallery.
This exchange is directed specifically to practicing Canadian artists that identify as indigenous peoples. As well, the body of their practice would need to reflect ideas and perspectives on indigenous culture and identity.
All artists are thanked for their applications, and encouraged to watch this page for the call for applications for the 2014 exchange.
