Call for Indigenous Artists
The Faculty of Law is seeking submissions from Indigenous artists for the creation of a piece that will have a permanent home in the law school.
In response to the TRC Calls to Action and the University of Calgary’s Indigenous Strategy, the Faculty of Law, in partnership and consultation with the Indigenous Law Students’ Association, would like to engage an artist to create a new art project that will have permanent residency within the Faculty of Law. The piece will honour Indigenous law, culture, spirituality, or reconciliation. The piece will be something our Indigenous students can recognize as a reflection of themselves, the generations who came before them, and the future generations to come.
The Faculty of Law recognizes that creating space for Indigenous inclusion is an important responsibility in the University’s journey to reconciliation. The Faculty hopes that this project will not only allow our community to acknowledge, recognize, learn, and reflect about Indigenous peoples and their cultures, but encourage it in a good way. We hope the piece will not only resonate with our Indigenous students, but with our non‐Indigenous law students, faculty members, staff, and visitors.
Submissions are due September 7, 2021.
