The Conseil des arts de Montréal is pleased to announce the applicants and internship projects selected for the second edition of CultivART, a program created for Indigenous artists and cultural workers living in Montreal who want to gain hands-on work experience at a cultural organization.
The paid 650-hour internships will offer program interns a real-life work experience in culture and the arts and a chance to contribute to the host organizations’ development. CultivART also provides Indigenous mentors with paid opportunities to share their expertise and pass on their knowledge.
The program is an initiative of the Conseil’s Indigenous Arts Committee and seeks to foster a new generation of Indigenous cultural workers, contribute to the advancement of Indigenous arts, promote fruitful two-way exchanges and intersectional dialogue on Indigenous realities, provide the Indigenous and non-Indigenous arts and culture communities with a Native perspective, and build a professional support system connecting mentors and emerging workers.
The internships receive $80,000 in funding from the Conseil des arts de Montréal. The following four projects were selected for the program’s 2021 edition from the 28 applications received.
The Conseil des arts de Montréal would like to offer its sincere congratulations to all participating interns, mentors and organizations.
