Indigenous Visual Culture at OCAD U welcomes Joi T. Arcand as our Fall 2017 Nigig Visiting Artist in Residence.

 

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.

The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency supports the dynamism located in Indigenous contemporary art and design practices and is a tremendous educational opportunity for the artist and students.
