Woodland is hiring a Curatorial Research Intern for a 9-week paid internship (30 hours/week). This position is generously funded through the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective.
This position allows Indigenous interns to spend the summer researching Indigenous curatorial practices and engaging in regional arts actions including summer festivals, arts events, community celebrations, theatrical presentations and creation incubators. Interns engage in a variety of professional development activities working with an array of supervised interactions engaging regional not-for-profit groups, arts collectives, municipal partners and First Nations communities. Having Indigenous heritage is strongly encouraged. ACC-CCA is exploring the relationship between the current Indigenous curatorial sector and Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation as all major arts institutions are currently reflecting on this. Our evaluative look at the past 150 years connects Indigenous and settler methodologies to each other to form a better understanding of “our” Canada. Interns will be working along side of established curators to develop ideas, write reflection articles and publish their works professionally to be seen across the whole country.

Your support of our language department is an act of true kindness and love. Our languages are so much more than words on paper – language frames deep philosophical and relational understandings that help all of us engage in kinder, more compassionate ways and is an important part of our healing from the trauma of residential school. Like many not-for-profit organizations that participate in #GivingTuesday, charitable donations form an important part of our financial wellbeing and they are also an important indication that you believe in us and the work we do. Wa’tkwanonhwerá:ton’ (I to you all, sending forth embracing, celebratory, good energy)”Thanks to your generous contributions we were able to raise $25,352 in support of the preservation of Hodinohsho:ni languages and the important revitalization work being done at Woodland.
