The FAC residency provides a platform to explore social justice issues with a feminist lens. The residencies gather artists together who focus on social justice issues such as rape culture, trans phobia, racism, violence, media representation, cultural appropriation, environmental degradation and impact on Indigenous lands, violence against women, and Islamophobic policies. We aim to create a space that is celebratory, positive, intellectually engaging and provocative. We are committed to this space being trans inclusive, anti-racist, and intersectional. The residencies include individual studio time accented with group discussions, readings, video, reflection, guest speakers, group and individual critiques. The resulting work will be presented in an exhibition at the end of the residency and pending curatorial acceptance will be included in a spotlight exhibition at the following FAC.
