Artists need space in which to create, gather, perform, and to live. There are multi-disciplines within the artistic community that have different needs for creative space that is affordable, suitable and sustainable. McLuhan House has recently opened a call for submissions to local artists for the McLuhan House Art Studio Residency. This will be the 3rd year in a row Arts Habitat has offered this space.
Located in the Highlands community of Edmonton, the artist or artist group that receives the residency will have private access to a 540 square foot garage studio space in which to practice their passion. Past residents include the Tennis Club Collective and the Black Girl Magic collective.
All genres from the creative community are invited to submit an application to be considered for the Residency position. Emphasis will be placed on finding an artist or artists with strong artistic work, and good potential to succeed in producing artwork in the available space/time.
Applications can be sent to Arts Habitat up to April 3rd at midnight. A multidisciplinary jury appointed by Arts Habitat will evaluate all submissions, and the artist(s) will be chosen through a one-stage Selection Committee process.
