We seek submissions from artists, makers and creatives who are based rurally across Mi’kma’ki, as well as from those who have rural life experience or work in proximity to a rural environment.
The Khyber will prioritize desires, requirements and proposals from those who have systematically faced oppression, exclusion and tokenism within the art world, including artists who are BIPOC, LGBTQ2+, Deaf and Hard of Hearing and those working in Disability Arts.
As an artist-run centre operating within the context of Turtle Island, we want to acknowledge the responsibility we have to present and highlight work by specifically Indigenous and Black artists. Located on Kjipuktuk, unceded Mi’kma’ki, we will place utmost priority on working with proposals and supporting the work of Mi’kmaw and African Nova Scotian artists.
We encourage applicants to self identify within their application. It is mandatory to self identify in your application if you are a white person and/or a cis man.
