New Indigenous Arts Programs | Banff Centre

Mixed Media Arts 101 
Dates: January 15 - February 7, 2020 Application deadline: November 13, 2019
The program is an opportunity for global Indigenous artists in all disciplines to access digital literacy training. The aim is to develop digital literacy for artists who have not been able to obtain training across select software, hardware, and technology platforms.
In addition to learnings around the production process, Mixed Media Arts 101 will also foster conversations about the social impacts of this changing landscape, digital racial profiling, cultural appropriation, technological elitism, and more. Participants accepted to the program will be eligible for up to 100% scholarship of the program fee.

Indigenous Playwrights Circle
Dates: April 06 - 17, 2020 Application deadline: November 27, 2019
The Indigenous Playwrights Circle provides support and space for development of new works in all stages of the dramaturgical process with a focus on revisiting textual work on plays that have had some performance life but are yet to be finalized. Similar to the Banff Playwrights Lab, each year the Indigenous Playwrights Circle will spotlight an area of focus. For 2020, we encourage Indigenous playwrights exploring Indigenous language or climate change to apply. Participants accepted to the program will be eligible for up to 100% scholarship of the program fee.
