Ghost Days: Making Art for Spirit

Participants will create works based on their personal relationship with the concept of spirit.

Overview
Ghost Days: Making Art for Spirit is an experiment in conjuring and medium-ship, combined with art and collaboration with the living and with spirit. Participants will create works based on their personal relationship with the concept of spirit.
Artists in this residency will partake in conversations with local Elders, as well as workshops involving photo/film development, sound art, performance, and storytelling to invoke spirit as both collaborator and audience.  

What does the program offer?
This intensive residency will emphasize collaboration, as well as connections with Indigenous themes  rooted in diverse personal and cultural understandings, including ways of knowing.
Participants will create multidisciplinary experimental audio/sound works, photographic works, and silk-screened works. The art created will showcase connections to spirit, ghosts, and hauntings. Participants will also be introduced to stories, essays, music, and poetry for research purposes and later discussions.

Who should apply?
Artists who are interested in exploring a new, multidisciplinary avenue into art and spirit are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will have a strong interest in ways of knowing, storytelling, and art making in an analogue manner.
