After an incredible first year, we are re-launching our Artist-in-Residence program!

The first program of its kind in Canada to provide access to shared studio space, exclusive and customized professional development opportunities that support artistic growth – all with the goal of building the creative capacity of Afro-diasporic artists.

​Goals:
​Accessibility & Inclusion: Address the lack of safe and inclusive spaces for Black artists.

Professional Development:Create spaces to support emerging artists to hone their talents.

​Community Building: Create opportunities for the community to experience artistic works rooted in Afro-diasporic traditions.

Residents will have access to:
Shared studio space for 4 months
Curatorial Guidance
Opportunity to present your work & receive feedback
Conversations with artists and leaders in Toronto’s arts & cultural community
Professional Development workshops
An artist fee + materials budget

The program will culminate with an exhibition of works produced by the residents in February 2020; dates to be confirmed.

Deadline to apply: Sunday, September 22, 2019, 11:59pm.
