Call for Submissions: Remote Research Residency

Arts Assembly & Access Gallery invite remotely-situated artists to apply to the Remote Research Residency (RRR).** **We're using the word remote to refer to a broader understanding of isolation—see below for clarification. Applications from artists who self-identify as Queer/LGBTQIA2S+, Black, Indigenous, racialized, disabled, and neurodivergent will be prioritized in the selection of six (6) artists or artistic groups. We will not share any personal health information collected during the application process. This project is open to those located within the geographic area of “Canada". There is no age limit.

This project aims to create connections, facilitate relationships, provide opportunities and support.

Recognizing the impacts of colonialism, white supremacy, and all forms of systemic oppression, we are working broadly in our own organizational approaches, and specifically with the structure and intentions of this project, to de-centre whiteness and nurture people, projects, and ideas, to whatever their natural evolution may be.

Remote can be understood as located rurally/outside of city centres, and/or facing isolation from artistic communities through circumstances such as working from home, caregiving, health needs, or displacement. Remoteness can be physical, geographic, mental and spiritual.  

The residencies will be one-month long and two artists will participate at the same time. We will facilitate dialogue between RRR participants, and encourage you to connect and share your practices with each other. In conversation with the participants, we will produce a digital exhibition/archive of your residency activities. Residencies will take place between May and October 2021.

Deadline for submissions is March 12th, 2021
