The Truth and Reconciliation Commission [http://www.trc.ca/] is inviting artists to submit works relating to as follows and deadline for applications is open and ongoing to December 31, 2013
apology, truth, cultural oppression, cultural genocide, resistance, resilience, spirituality, remembrance, reconciliation, and rejuvenation.
OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTIC SUBMISSIONS
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (“TRC”) believes that artists have a profound contribution to make in expressing both truth and reconciliation.
The TRC invites all artists to submit works that relate to experiences at Indian Residential Schools or that relate to the legacy and impact of those experiences on former students, parents, future generations, communities, and on relationships within families and between communities.
In addition, the TRC invites artists to submit works relating to apology, truth, cultural oppression, cultural genocide, resistance, resilience, spirituality, remembrance, reconciliation, rejuvenation and restoration of Aboriginal culture and pride.
Why is the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada gathering artistic works?
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) is an important part of the agreement that ended most of the lawsuits about Indian Residential Schools. The Commission’s job is to:
- Tell Canadians what happened in the Indian Residential Schools;
- Create a permanent record of what happened in the Indian Residential Schools by establishing a National Research Centre (NRC).
The TRC believes that collecting artistic works is an important and meaningful way to express the truth, impact and legacy of the Residential School experience and to assist with reconciliation.
What kind of works of art can you give?
The TRC is happy to receive your artistic expression in any way that you choose, including decorative and traditional arts, sculptures and carvings, drawings and paintings.
Deadline: Open and ongoing to December 31, 2013
For ALL submissions, you MUST submit a completed Application Form and signed Release Form with your submission. The TRC will NOT return submitted works to the sender. Do NOT send master or original copies. The TRC bears no responsibility for loss or damage to materials that are submitted.
You may also submit a synopsis or explanation of the work, your artist bio or CV, your website address or any other relevant material.
Decisions on which works will be included in the National Events are made by the TRC Commissioners, based on advice from the TRC Vetting Committee, which will be comprised of the TRC Executive Director, TRC creative team, and a number of IRS survivors from across the country.
