Indigenous Artist in Residence

The Indigenous Artist in Residence program is an opportunity for a local artist to work with the City and bring an Indigenous artistic presence to Victoria.

Over a two-year term, the selected artist collaborates with the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, as well as other local artists and organizations. The residency does not have a set theme or direction. This gives the artist freedom to shape it based on their own artistic practice.

The City established the program in 2017 to honour the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
