Artist in Residence

The Mellon ISCEI Artist in Residence program is an important means of bringing practicing artists to campus to continue their work, share their expertise, interact with students and faculty members, and enhance knowledge of and exposure to Indigenous art among the campus community and the public at large. The annual Artist in Residence will be co-organized with the Department of Art History & Communication Studies and will be involved in a variety of on-campus activities such as workshops and public exhibitions, and will be available as a resource to students, faculty, and staff.  

ISCEI looks forward to welcoming an Indigenous Artist in Residence to McGill Campus when it is safe to do so, and when campus life and travel can resume.  In the meantime, stay tuned for updates and online programming. 

You can find more information about the TRC Calls to Action and the Artist in Residence program on McGill's Indigenous Portal Website.
