Location: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada.

Duration: 3 weeks. Programming begins mid-September to early October 2015 (flexible).
 
Eligibility: Establishing and Professional Artists are welcome to apply. 
 
Costs / Support: There are no costs to the artist except for travel.  The artist will be paid for their exhibition, workshop and/or artist talk(s) along with accommodations and a daily stipend.  Although travel costs are not covered, YK ARCC will write a support letter for CCA travel grant upon request.  Housing and artist studio are provided.
 
Program Description:  In Yellowknife, a city of approximately 20,000 inhabitants, homelessness is undeniably disproportionate and affordable housing options are limited. On the other hand, there is an abundance of unoccupied space in town. These spaces could be used in creative ways to display art and generate dialogue about how space is used in our town.  Finding creative solutions is on our agenda.
 
“This City III” is a project that falls in line with finding creative solutions to our city’s complex, intersectional needs.  For its third year running “This City III” continues to address social concern and engage our community through the use of art.
 
YK ARCC is looking for an artist to take to the streets and explore our city– our community, the locals, our local economies, our spaces, and create a project that offers findings, questions, and/or commentary relevant to our city. We ask that the project take place outside of the white box in order to further the opportunities for community engagement and reinforce the values of the project.
 
Duties & Responsibilities:  The artist is responsible for the research, development and completion of their own project in line with “This City III”, including: one measurable needs assessment, one artist talk, and one workshop (that lends itself to the project at hand) and finally one presentation of the work in form of exhibition/performance/installation/etc.
 
Applications:  Please send anything you find relevant to show your interest areas and previous works to: ykarcc@gmail.com. Make sure you include a short text explaining your motivation to come and work on this particular project. Optionally you can include a short description of a project you wish to realize here.  CVs are not necessary but accepted.  There is no fee to apply.   A committee of local artists will look at applications on a rolling basis, so apply as soon as possible.

Application Deadline is August 1st 2015
