Call for Artist Residency.

Arts Letters & Numbers provides a place of creative urgency where new thought processes, linkages, and works are developed in an interdisciplinary environment.  It is a place where people come together to co-construct questions and works, of empathy, of ethics, of imagination.

The Residency provides space for individuals or groups so that they can create new artworks while developing meaningful relationships with other artists. Artists are invited to pursue their personal creative endeavours, lead a workshop, give a talk, share a film, exhibit or perform work. The Residency cultivates a space not only for individual explorations but also collaborations, shared dinners, and bonfire conversations as other dimensions of the creative process.

When people are free to create, interact and support one another, new ways of making, expressing, thinking, doing, and contributing emerge.  


Our Artist in Residence Program runs all year with the exception of July 1st - August 15th. The Program is put on hold due to our annual Summer Workshop. Residencies are from 1 week to 12 weeks. 


Arts Letters & Numbers facilities are a collection of buildings along Burden Lake Road: The House on the Hill, The Twins, The Barn and The Mill. With a variety of different sized studio spaces, a wooden barn and the outdoor grounds, we welcome artists to think of these spaces at sites they can work with and within. Because each artist's studio needs differ, we work with each artist to find the best possible working space for their time here.

We have an assortment of power and hand tools, digital media equipment, and musical instruments including a 9’ concert grand piano and upright piano all available for artists to use.


  • Shared accommodation sleeps 2 to 4 people $175/week
  • Private accommodations $275/week
  • Couples accommodation $375/week

Residents are responsible for their own meals, but it is often the case that everyone in the house gathers to cook and share dinners together.

Day Residency - no accommodation included: $95/week

The Day Residency is for commuting Residents only. These artists also have access to all working facilities.


There are a limited number of Residency Work Scholarships available with up to 50% reduction of the residency fee. Scholarships are only for residencies 8 weeks or longer and require dedication to the tasks that are taken on weekly for exchange. Please inquire if you are interested in work exchange.


Everyone staying at Arts Letters & Numbers is expected to treat the facilities with care and consideration as well as be mindful of each other’s space. Whether it’s in a living or working situation, everyone is responsible to clean up after themselves and to lend a helping hand when needed. Arts Letters & Numbers is based on the value and reward derived from communal efforts.


Monday afternoon: T-time; serious casual conversations in the ‘Shack in the Back’, making linkages with other minds through critical enquiries, abstractions and thoughts.

Tuesday Evening: Table Tennis gathering; potluck dinner and ping pong at various houses in the local community

Friday Morning: Liver and Onions; very casual conversations with the local community over potluck breakfast

Other possible happenings: Open Mic (opportunity of sharing in progress or completed works, as well as sharing of influences and references.) Exhibitions, Performances, Workshops, Dinners and Excursions to Museums etc. (Organized and hosted by Fellows and Resident Artists)
