The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity has announced its series of 2019 creative residencies, offering arts practitioners structured programs to explore new directions in their work alongside Banff’s international faculty and artists. Situated in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, these residencies allow for “More time. More space. More art.”
Applications are now open for the arts writer, curator and artist residencies, each of which are thematic and self-directed, and intended for professional artists, curators and arts researchers with an exhibition/publication record.
During the Arts Writer Residency, mid-career arts writers will develop a critical writing project and conduct research during this program, while enjoying focused time and space as well as engagement with the artists-in-residence and other visual arts programs. The residency is suited to arts writers focused on the development of a substantial project resulting in an external publication.
The Curator Residency provides time and space for mid-career curators to develop an exhibition or project and conduct research while engaging with artists-in-residence and programs in Visual Arts. The program is suited to curators focused on the development of a substantial project resulting in an external public exhibition or curatorial event.
And finally, the Banff Artist Residency program offers opportunities for artists to work away from the constraints of everyday life. Participants are provided with a studio, accessible 24 hours a day, as well as access to the institution’s extensive facilities to further develop production techniques.
Deadline: Sept. 5, 2018
