ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
H/T: Melanie Yugo
Enacting sustainable and impactful change in communities is a complex and evolving challenge. Arts Network Ottawa and the City of Ottawa are pleased to announce a call for applications for our artist-in-residence in government (AIRG) program.
This is a paid opportunity for artists that aims to address unique civic challenges and reframe traditional approaches and solutions by connecting artists with municipal government staff and community. By embedding an artist within a local city department, the selected candidate will apply their own creative perspectives and history to co-produce transformative models of community engagement and address pressing local challenges in new ways that challenge the status quo.

We acknowledge that our offices are on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation. The peoples of the Algonquin Anishinaabe Nation have lived on this territory for millennia, stewarding the land, the water and all that contributes to life in this region. Today, many Indigenous communities continue to be denied the opportunity and resources to make and experience their traditional art on this land. We pledge to make justice and reconciliation a priority through our work by amplifying Indigenous voices and their experiences.
