O k’inadas // complicated reconciliations: an artist residency

This residency is part of a Summer Indigenous Art Intensive Program at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus.  We will be activating this site for posts, visuals, and discussion from July 04 to Aug 16, 2016 to capture the thoughts behind the “k’inadas” residency program. The k’inadas artist collective acknowledges an award received from the {Re}conciliation initiative with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and The Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.

Note: rmooc has undergone several incarnations and continues to be available as an archive and resource.

Summer Indigenous Art Intensive Program

The Indigenous Summer Intensive is coordinated by the Creative Studies Department (in the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus) and features a core group of senior artists: Rebecca Belmore, Lori Blondeau, David Garneau, and Adrian Stimson. It will also include upward of 20 visiting studio artists and curators in residence as part of the “K’inadas studio residency.” These artists will be developing new work addressing issues related to the ongoing complex responses to reconciliation, and art-making practices as a radical methodology for decolonization and Indigenizing contemporary theoretical discourse and art praxis. These artists include:
