Wildseed Centre for Art and Activism is launching the second Black Arts Fellowship, an expansive interdisciplinary program for eight emerging and mid-career Black artists. This paid 12-month fellowship curates intensive residencies, workshops, mentorship, creation time, and presentation opportunities to offer fellows the space for deep, collaborative and playful exploration and creation in community. This fellowship emerges from the intersection of art and activism. Artists are invited to infuse their practices with knowledge of ancestral and contemporary Black struggles for liberation; to imagine their work within the projects of abolition and decolonization; to deepen their understanding of care and community commitments in the arts; and to experience the kind of joy that comes from moving with, for and fully alongside other Black kin.
This program is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and Toronto Arts Council.
