Banff Artist in Residence Emerging | Visual Arts Program

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

BAiR Emerging combines the artistic freedom of a self-directed residency with the supportive benefits of an organized program.  As well as having the space to create, research, and experiment, participants are part of a community of emerging artists committed to developing and expanding their practice. 

What does the program offer?

Over a period of five weeks, participants will have opportunities to hone their individual practice and collaborate with others, present work to their peers, engage in discussion and critique, learn from demonstrations in various visual art production techniques, and further develop the professional skills needed to support and sustain their practice. Artists will benefit from the insight provided by lead and guest faculty through studio visits and lectures, and attend events across campus in various disciplines. 

This program will provide professional development  for emerging artists and open up new possibilities and directions in the production of their work. Our knowledgeable staff will be on hand to offer demonstrations, technical support, and provide access to facilities in photography, sculpture, printmaking, papermaking, ceramics, fibre, video, digital technology, and more.

Who should apply?

This residency is for emerging artists who have completed university level training in visual arts (preferably within the last five years), or who have equivalent experience and recognition from their peers.  

Applicants should also hold an active exhibition record of at least two years in length, and show evidence of dedication in their pursuit of an artistic career.

The program is designed for full participation over the entire four week period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Application Deadline: September 04, 2019
