This three-week program brings together emerging artists from around the world to work and study with Co-Artistic Directors Vijay Iyer and Tyshawn Sorey, as well as internationally acclaimed guest mentors. The goal is to learn, converse, build, experiment, refine, and transform — to reimagine the state of the art. This program is one of the most intensive that Banff Centre offers, and continues our 40-year history of incredible jazz exploration.  

What does the program offer?

The Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music is designed to help emerging musicians become performers/composers of consequence in the world, with an emphasis on community and collaboration.

There is a major recording component to the residency and two weeks of sessions spent in our world-class studio with renowned faculty engineers and producers.  
Participants will receive a personal studio space to work from, available 24 hours a day. Production spaces are shared among all participants in the residency. Scholarship is available.

Who should apply?

Open to applicants worldwide, this residency is a call for artists and composers who have an established practice. Artists should have produced an independent body of work and received recognition through public presentation in performance or recordings as well as from their peers.
