Moving Together/Arriving Together: Decolonising Partnerships Project

Call for Artists - August Toolkit Creation Residency

Arrivals Legacy Project (ALP) is undertaking an exploration into how collaborative partnerships show up for BIPGM artists working together across perceived disciplinary and cultural boundaries.  Our study also examines the role of partnering organizations and institutions that engage or wish to engage BIPGM artists. Among other outcomes, we’d like to demonstrate how ALP is a leader in the process of decolonising creative partnerships.

Moving/Arriving Together: Decolonising Creative Partnerships approaches this research from the lens and perspective of practicing artists embedded in their craft and art form who have all taken part in the Arrivals work. 


One of our main goals for this project is to develop a dynamic toolkit that will be available on the ALP website with multimedia materials created by artists who are engaged in this research.


Collaborative Creation Residency – August 19th – 26th 2024


We are hosting this collaborative toolkit creation residency from August 19th – 26th 2024 inviting ALP artist alumni to conduct research, reflect on key questions, and to develop collateral materials on a daily basis over the course of the 5-day residency that contributes to our digital toolkit. 


By engaging artists coming from our interdisciplinary community, we are thinking outside of the box with respect to the production of traditional toolkits–aiming to create a dynamic and engaging product. Our creation residency will flesh out the diverse collaborative potential of this project. 


Created works can take the form of the artist’s primary practices (i.e. sound, video, visual arts, literary arts), but the final works must be digital in nature to fit the parameters of living online. These digital works will live in our SeedPool Gallery, which showcases artists’ creation and collaborations.


We have opened this call for applications from ALP Alum artists to take part in this collaborative residency.
