Shakaat Artist Residency Program

Shakaat Artist Residency is an annual community based Artist-in-Residence program hosted the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. The aim of this program is to encourage, support, and showcase Indigenous artists.

Artists set up a studio for three-week periods from July to September where they provide demonstrations to the public and work on personal projects. At the end of the year, there is a curated exhibit showcasing artists’ creations around a central theme.

Artists will deliver public workshops sharing their skills and knowledge. Keep your eyes on our Facebook and Instagram for up-to-date information regarding workshops and who is currently participating in the residency!

Funding for this project is made possible through the assistance of Arts Fund, Department of Tourism and Culture, Jeanie McLean, Minister.
