Response: Resonance - Call For Artists

Applications are now closed

Calling photographers, filmmakers, and visual storytellers! This is an opportunity to create photographic or video work through exploratory workshops with contemporary Indigenous artists. Inspired by diverse approaches to expression across contemporary Indigenous film and media, Response: Resonance broadly considers the ways sound and voice express strength, survivance, and presence.

Workshops will take place online during Summer 2022, helping participants create original work that will be shown at The Polygon Gallery, North Vancouver in Fall 2022.

Don’t worry if you don’t have tons of experience—if you’re a beginner, let us know. We want to hear from you about why you’re interested in the topic “Resonance”, and why you’re eager to learn from Indigenous media artists and Knowledge Holders.

The Polygon encourages applications from BC-residents with an interest or practice in visual/media arts. Priority is reserved for Indigenous and emerging participants. Available spots will be made open to the public in late June. We thank all who express interest in this opportunity.

If you know a friend who might be interested in this program, tell them to apply, too!
