Banff Artist in Residence - Spring 2022

Date: Dec 22, 2021

Deadline: Jan 19, 2022 - 11:45 pm


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

Participants will 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.
