The Centre CLARK and the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective/Collectif des Commissaires Autochtones’ (ACC/CCA) Tiohtià:ke Project are pleased to partner to offer an opportunity for a studio residency at the Centre CLARK during Winter 2019 (January-March 2019) to an Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) artist or curator from any region of the territory known as Quebec. This residency will allow the chosen candidate to work on a corpus of artwork and/or to do research related to their artistic/curatorial practice. The artist/curator will therefore have exclusive access to an individual studio space, in addition to having access to the Atelier CLARK (woodworking and carpentry workshop) if they so desires, both located in the same building  than the Centre CLARK. The chosen candidate will benefit from Centre CLARK and ACC/CCA resources, contacts and support to ensure that the artist/curator can accomplish their own research goals set for the residency. A public presentation will be organized in the studio near the end of the residency.



ACC-CCA is a National Indigenous Arts Service Organization with an 11-year history of support and advocacy for Indigenous curators, artists and arts professionals within Canada. The Tiohtià:ke Project is an ambitious two year-cycle of programming run by the ACC/CCA and will bring together Indigenous curators, artists and writers from across Quebec and Canada, which enables new networks and relationships to be established through strategies such as the formation of a curatorial delegation, exhibitions and events. The Tiohtià:ke project is made possible through the funding from the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter Grant.



The Centre d’art et de diffusion CLARK is an artist-run centre dedicated to the presentation and production of contemporary art located in Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Guided by a mandate that promotes a balance of production, presentation, and promotion, as well cultural diversity, intergenerational representation, equity and equality between genders, artistic media and the artists it presents or assists – at any stage of their career the Centre’s programming is at the forefront of today’s most innovative and risk-taking practices by artists.



Each residence is accompanied by:

- $2250 research fee

- $2250 per diems

Travel, accommodation and studio rental expenses are covered for the duration of the residency.
