Kansas: Indigenous Arts Initiative

The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC) and the University of Kansas’s Spencer Museum of Art, Lied Center of Kansas, and Department of Film and Media Studies have launched their Indigenous Arts Initiative. The effort will support collaborative, mentorship based programming at the University of Kansas that is designed to foster the creative and professional growth of emerging indigenous artists. Over the course of a two-week residency in Lawrence, each participating artist will work with mentor indigenous artists and University of Kansas faculty, staff, and students to create socially engaged works of art, strengthen ties between Kansas and indigenous communities, and enhance Native American leadership at the border of artistic and community practice. Residencies also will feature master classes, workshops and roundtable discussions. Resident artists will receive free lodging, a $500 stipend and up to $300 in travel reimbursement. In 2019, resident artists will present their work at the KU Indigenous Cultures Festival. For more information, contact KCAIC Director Peter Jasso.
