Indigenous Arts Residency

Deadline : October 28, 2020 at 11:59 pm.


Are you an Indigenous or non-Indigenous organization that receives multi-year or project support from the Conseil des arts de Montréal or a first-time applicant?


Are you interested in hosting an Indigenous artist whose mandate will be:

research; creation/production; specialized or multidisciplinary presentation, including artist-run centres and art galleries; publication of a cultural magazine; organization of an event or festival; or being a museum?


If so, this residency program is for you! Selected organizations can receive a maximum of $20,000 to host an Indigenous artist-in-residence. 


The Indigenous Arts Residency Program’s goals include: 


  • helping to increase the representation of Indigenous artists in the arts and culture sector; 
  • Increasing the visibility of Indigenous arts in the arts and culture sector and thereby supporting their advancement.


Residencies range from two (2) to twelve (12) months, depending on the Indigenous artist’s needs. This is one-time support.
