Are you an Indigenous artist interested in working with schools? Would you like to inspire curiosity and learning in young people across the province through your creative practice? Do you want to learn how to integrate the BC curriculum and help activate learning in classrooms through art?
Indigenous artists are vital in schools. Sharing your art practice with young people will have a meaningful, lasting impact on the next generation.
Indigenous artists in BC working in all disciplines—visual arts, music, dance, theatre, storytelling and more—are invited to apply to take part in the Arts Integration Learning Lab: Indigenous Artists Edition, a learning series designed to identify the complex relationship between education and decolonization through the perspectives of Indigenous artists.
This collaborative professional learning experience will build your capacity as a Teaching Artist to prepare you for the many different components of the school system—from pedagogy to curriculum to culture and more—while maintaining and strengthening your critical and creative perspective as an Indigenous artist in BC.
The cost for artists selected to participate is fully subsidized, covering tuition, program materials and lunch. This opportunity is made possible through funding support from BC Arts Council and the Government of British Columbia’s Creative Futures program.
