Neurodivergent Artist Collective (Community Arts Council of Vancouver)
“We are pleased to announce that we have received funding from Disability Alliance BC to fund a new project for Neurodivergent artists in Vancouver! This project will encourage neurodivergent artists to take space in a neurotypical world and work collaboratively to dismantle invisible inequities in contemporary art spaces. In 2023, the collective will work together to present a minimum of one visual arts exhibition in November in downtown Vancouver.
The target group for this project are artists who are 19 years or older and self-identify as neurodivergent and who have felt alienated from engaging in the arts due to a lack of access and other barriers. Artists without a portfolio of work who can bring other valuable skills and experiences to the collective are encouraged to apply!
This collective will be a safe space for folks who face socio-economic barriers, from differing cultural backgrounds, and folks from all sexual orientations and gender identities.
Please read before applying: Artists must live in/be registered to an address within the City of Vancouver’s 22 local areas: Arbutus-Ridge, Downtown, Dunbar-Southlands, Fairview, Grandview-Woodland, Hastings-Sunrise, Kensington-Cedar Cottage, Kerrisdale, Killarney, Kitsilano, Marpole, Mount Pleasant, Oakridge, Renfrew-Collingwood, Riley Park, Shaughnessy, South Cambie, Strathcona, Sunset, Victoria-Fraserview, West End, West Point Grey.”
