Summer Indigenous Art Intensive

 

This month-long residency gathers artists, curators, writers and scholars to engage in contemporary ideas and discourse—a place for new ideas rooted in Indigenous art-making.

UBC Okanagan’s Summer Indigenous Art Intensive offers an educational series of courses, lectures, art shows, and opportunities to create art. It features a series of world-renowned speakers, a variety of related undergraduate and graduate credit courses, and a group of resident artists who will be working to create a new body of work.

The Summer Indigenous Art Intensive is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
