Fogo Island Arts and the Hnatyshyn Foundation are seeking applications from young Canadian curators for a six-week residency in 2020.

The Hnatyshyn Foundation-Fogo Island Arts Young Curator Residency provides an opportunity for an emerging Canadian curator between the ages of 25 and 30 to participate in a six-week residency. The residency will cover the costs of travel to and from Fogo Island, accommodations in a traditional Newfoundland home and use of a vehicle for on-island transportation. The residency also includes a stipend to cover food costs and incidentals.

During the residency period, participants have opportunities to work and interact with Fogo Island Arts staff, Canadian and international artists-in-residence and members of the community. Candidates are selected based on their body of work and their ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

Curators-in-residence are provided with a studio, accommodation in a traditional Newfoundland home, a vehicle for on-island use and a weekly stipend to offset the costs of materials and day-to-day living expenses. Most travel expenses are covered. Curators-in-residence must give one public presentation, performance, workshop or similar event during their residency.
