Deadline: May 14, 2017

Residency period: JULY 31 - AUG 16, 2017


The aim of THE INTERGENERATIONAL LGBT ARTIST RESIDENCY is a vision and experience of sustainability through shared practice, art career management training, and community building via Canadian LGBTQ art and political histories. (English fluency is not required, landed immigrant status is not required.) Whether you are ‘emerging,’ 'established,’ or an inbetweenster, please consider applying!

Notification will be emailed late May 2017. Those artists who accept the offer of a place at the residency will then have two months to prepare, and if necessary to apply for travel funding. The residency is committed to helping you to raise money for travel, however we cannot offer travel funding at this time.

The residency is interested in applications critically engaged with politics and art histories of LGBTQ communities in Canada. Previous investigations have queered methods, materials, immigrant histories, landscape and Canadian canon. Projects and practices responding to or resisting history of colonialism, especially in light of the so-called Canada 150, are of particular interest. The jury seeks to build a cohort each summer of artists who could in multiple ways connect with each other an contribute to each other's experience. 

If you could have a studio visit from anyone, whom would it be, what would you like to ask them about their own practice or would you want feedback/critiques.....?

How would you identify in terms of 'generations'?

While there is ample time and spaces for solitude during the residency, this is a group themed residency and not appropriate for those seeking a solo residency. Participants are expected to take full advantage of the opportunities the residency provides, and the unique qualities of the islands. In light of this, and for group cohesion and scheduling, participants remain on site 80% of the time. We cannot accommodate overnight guests, except in the case of personal attendant for accessibility accommodation. Please contact us regarding accessibility needs.

The entire application process is paperless, and can be completed via online form below.
