The Village Canoe

$5,000 Awarded
 

The Village Canoe is an immersive, outdoor, floating artist residency and exhibition. Structured as an expedition, the residence will take place from a 30-foot voyageur canoe, inviting through an open call up to six participants to paddle, camp, and make art along the Maine coast and/or rivers on the interior. At the culmination of the trip, artists will host a temporary, free, public, and interactive pop-up exhibition of the work produced during the residency. The show will take place outdoors in a movable bow-roof structure – the same enclosure in which the canoe will have been built.
