hgartistsposterlow

 

Artists in Gwaii Haanas is an annual residency program, presented by the Haida Gwaii Museum and Parks Canada, with the goal of connecting artists to Gwaii Haanas—and through these artists, connect Gwaii Haanas to Canada and the greater world.

In *July 2017, three artists will spend 5-10 days immersed in travel throughout the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. Based at a remote field-camp, artists will be guided by Gwaii Haanas staff as they embark on day-trips throughout the region to conduct artistic research through exploration, photography, sketching, writing and contemplation. Breathtaking vistas, unique interactions with culture and nature, and inspirational conversation with Gwaii Haanas staff, the Haida Gwaii Watchmen and others in the area are sure to inspire and inform their artistic practice.

Following their travels in Gwaii Haanas, the artists will spend an additional 1-2 weeks at the Haida Gwaii Museum where they will practice their art, interact with visitors and provide some public programming. Lastly, artists will create a body of work inspired by their time in Gwaii Haanas, to be exhibited in a group exhibition at the Haida Gwaii Museum. One of their pieces will be donated to the Artists in Gwaii Haanas permanent collection.

In creating art inspired by Gwaii Haanas, artists can reveal meanings and relationships that complement scientific, cultural and educational perspectives. Participating artists are expected to share their residency experiences through their diverse networks and in creative ways to heighten the profile and exposure of the Artist in Gwaii Haanas residency program, and, to form connections that extend across Haida Gwaii and beyond.
