Join an Incredible Community

MEMBERSHIP

The Membership program was developed at the ACC-CCA’s incorporation in 2006 and will now see the implementation of an Institutional Membership Program; Community Membership; and an ACC-CCA Member’s Database.

Community Membership

Our members are artists, curators, art historians and arts professionals who nurture and sustain a presence for Indigenous arts and curatorial practices.

The ACC-CCA considers community members as both Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals interested in engaging in conversations on Indigenous curatorial practices in Canada and internationally. This membership is free and the ACC-CCA’s staff commits to ensuring that each member is aware of all ACC-CCA opportunities and is invited to our biennial gathering.

Institutional Membership Program

The Aboriginal Curatorial Collective’s (ACC) Institutional Membership Program exists to build stronger relationships with institutions who are currently working with or who are trying to work with Indigenous peoples in their spaces. Each relationship developed through this membership program will be different for each partnership as every institution has different needs.

Through this program, the ACC has the right to directly address institutions that are not implementing recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in good ways to better serve the Indigenous peoples that interact with those spaces.
