Program Description

ISCP invites professional artists who are First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to apply for a six-month residency at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in New York City. This residency will support the development of an Indigenous artist, expand discourses on Indigenous art, and foster deeper international collaboration with New York City and Indigenous artistic communities. This call is open only to Indigenous contemporary artists with Canadian passports, working in all mediums. Pending full acceptance by ISCP, the applicant is encouraged to apply for funding for ISCP’s participation fee for six months to be fully covered, and additional allocations to cover individual travel and living expenses in New York City will also be awarded to the successful applicant. Sources for support may include private foundations, corporations, individual patrons, or government agencies. For example:
