The Indigenous Art Intensive

For the Indigenous Art Intensive the UBC Okanagan Gallery and the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies invites renowned Indigenous artists to syilx territories in the Okanagan to work with our students and faculty on campus and have time to create a new work.

The Indigenous Art Intensive is a unique immersive program that brings international and national Indigenous scholars, curators, artists and writers together on campus to interact with students in an artist residency context.

Keynote Presentations and Artist Panels

All keynote presentations and artist panels are free and open to the public.

The Intensive offers an immersive experience of undergraduate and graduate courses in Visual Arts, Creative Writing, Art History, Visual Culture, and Indigenous Studies, along with panel conversations, keynote addresses, art exhibitions and performances, readings, and various additional events and field trips throughout – some planned, some impromptu.

Alongside the intensive residency, FCCS is offering additional courses in Visual Art, Creative Writing, Art History and Visual Culture. These will run in conjunction with the Indigenous Summer Intensive with varying degrees of crossover, providing students the opportunity to connect with the keynote speakers and the resident artists. All courses run in May and June.
