Call for artists - Residency opportunity


The Banff Artist in Residence program is designed for visual artists so that they can focus on their practice in a supportive learning environment. Artists are encouraged to self-direct their time and research, as well as cultivate new directions in their work. This artist residency provides a space where artists can experiment and take risks under the support of shared production facilities with the help of knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical assistance. The residency also includes individual studio visits with guest faculty and dialogue amongst peers.

Participants receive visits from guest faculty and may attend talks, exhibitions, and performances at Walter Phillips Gallery by other visiting artists. In addition, participants have the opportunity to build connections, expand networks, and share their work with other artists-in-residence and the public.
