The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency, hosted by the Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD University, is a program that provides an opportunity for an Indigenous artist to visit OCAD University for a 3-4 week period to focus on a short-term project and explore in a collaborative environment, issues impacting their work. 

During these weeks, Neebinnaukzhik Southall will work on the creation of free-to-use Anishinaabe stock art and icons, released under a creative commons license. Readily accessible, culturally relevant, and relatable imagery will function to better familiarize readers with their Anishinaabe culture and promote sovereignty.
