“Everyone is waking up”: Tanya Tagaq on fighting for justice and singing for Björk

“….Protest music has found an avant-garde champion in the formidable grunts and howls of Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq. April Clare Welsh finds out how the First Nations activist and Björk collaborator is using her platform to shine a light on Canada’s dark history […]Tagaq believes that online activism like the virtual mob that flocked to Standing Rock has become “absolutely crucial” in the global fight for Indigenous rights. “Indigenous people have been fighting for the planet for a very, very long time,” she says, “but everyone is waking up to it now. You see these elders engaging in peaceful protests and getting pepper-sprayed by billionaire companies that just want more money – in 2016 that’s just unacceptable. Too many people are awake to accept that behaviour.”[…] Tagaq herself is a survivor of Canada’s notorious Residential School System, a forced assimilation programme which operated from the late 19th century right until 1996, taking Indigenous children away from their communities and placing them in boarding schools around the country. Around 6,000 students died during the residential schools’ existence, and sexual and physical abuse was endemic – though Tagaq emphasises that she doesn’t carry personal pain from her time at high school: “I wouldn’t want to take anything away from the people who suffered the massive indignities themselves.”….”

This City III – Residency & Social Art Project – YK ARCC, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada

, Installation, Media Arts, Music & Sound, Other, Performance, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Visual Arts.

Location: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada.

Duration: 3 weeks. Programming begins mid-September to early October 2015 (flexible).

Eligibility: Establishing and Professional Artists are welcome to apply.

Costs / Support: There are no costs to the artist except for travel.  The artist will be paid for their exhibition, workshop and/or artist talk(s) along with accommodations and a daily stipend.  Although travel costs are not covered, YK ARCC will write a support letter for CCA travel grant upon request.  Housing and artist studio are provided.

Program Description:  In Yellowknife, a city of approximately 20,000 inhabitants, homelessness is undeniably disproportionate and affordable housing options are limited. On the other hand, there is an abundance of unoccupied space in town. These spaces could be used in creative ways to display art and generate dialogue about how space is used in our town.  Finding creative solutions is on our agenda.

“This City III” is a project that falls in line with finding creative solutions to our city’s complex, intersectional needs.  For its third year running “This City III” continues to address social concern and engage our community through the use of art.

YK ARCC is looking for an artist to take to the streets and explore our city– our community, the locals, our local economies, our spaces, and create a project that offers findings, questions, and/or commentary relevant to our city. We ask that the project take place outside of the white box in order to further the opportunities for community engagement and reinforce the values of the project.

Duties & Responsibilities:  The artist is responsible for the research, development and completion of their own project in line with “This City III”, including: one measurable needs assessment, one artist talk, and one workshop (that lends itself to the project at hand) and finally one presentation of the work in form of exhibition/performance/installation/etc.

Applications:  Please send anything you find relevant to show your interest areas and previous works to: ykarcc [at] gmail.com. Make sure you include a short text explaining your motivation to come and work on this particular project. Optionally you can include a short description of a project you wish to realize here.  CVs are not necessary but accepted.  There is no fee to apply.   A committee of local artists will look at applications on a rolling basis, so apply as soon as possible.

Application Deadline is August 1st 2015

“…To her colleagues at the college where Kublu works, she is, we hope, an equal, with a professional competence extending beyond her particular role as instructor of interpretation and translation. To her students, she is a role model, one who has attained a balance between two worlds. To herself . . . well, she knows she can never be the kind of Inuk her elders were, but, with all due respect, she doesn’t want to be. And she never could be a “qallunaaq” (white person). …”

“….In the last interview before her death, close to the time of these photographs, Patricia Newcomb, her friend and press secretary, remembers that Marilyn pleaded unsuccessfully with the reporter to end his article like this:

“What I really want to say: That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody: stars, laborers, Negroes, Jews, Arabs. We are all brothers.

Please don’t make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe.” …”

“…If there was ever a time to use the term jaw-dropping, this might very well be it. Because while we’ve seen some amazing footage and even more amazing pictures of supercells and other spectacular weather phenomena, this (GoPro?) time-lapse by the storm chasers at Bashunters Chasing is really something to behold.

At two minutes long, it won’t take you very long at all to sit down, click the fullscreen button and get a serious dose of respect for the power of nature….”
