I am an interdisciplinary artist doing an artist residency this fall at the Joggins Fossil Cliffs UNESCO world heritage site.
This artist residency is unique in that I will be spending a lot of time interacting with the land.
As a settler artist, I must recognize that the land is always a space of indigenous authority and care. I want to take the time to be considerate of the things I may not know.
While I’m at this residency, I will be creating art with local plants, rocks and soils. As a gardener and forager, I have a hobbyist level of knowledge about these things, but I still want to act in a way that is culturally respectful.
If you or anyone you know would be willing to talk with me about this project, please reach out! Participants will be paid CARFAC fees and per diems towards travel or child care.
