Banff Artist in Residence Late Spring 2019

This program is designed for visual artists exploring self-directed research themes.

The Banff Artist in Residence (BAiR) program is designed for visual artists to focus on their own practice in a supportive learning environment. Participants are encouraged to explore new ideas, create, self-direct their research and time, and cultivate new directions in their work — all while surrounded by a community of peers within Banff Centre’s spectacular mountain setting.
The program encourages experimentation and risk-taking, via access to shared production facilities and knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical support and assistance.* Participants may attend talks, exhibitions, and performances by world-renowned visiting artists as well as receive studio visits from program guest artists. In addition, participants have the opportunity to build connections, create networks, collaborate, and share their work with other artists-in-residence and the public.

What does the program offer?
The Banff Artist in Residence program allows participants to delve deeply into their practice while away from the constraints of everyday life. Participants are provided with a studio, accessible 24 hours a day, as well as access to our extensive facilities.*

What length of residency is available?
This program is designed for participation over the entire period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?
