About the Artist in Residency Program:
We have expanded upon the 2011 installment of the AIR program to include a studio in Fort Chipewyan. This new residency is a month long residency for an established artist. Artists in both Fort McMurray and Fort Chipewyan, Alberta (the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo), will gain a dedicated studio space to work in during the 2012 summer.
The program will enable a blend of both emergent and mid-career artists to create and explore, as well as to exchange ideas and insights within a multi-disciplinary environment. The residency includes the studio space (with no associated fee), delivery of a 15 – 20 minute artist talk per artist, demonstration and instructional opportunities.
During the residency, the artists will be expected to create an original body of work in collaboration with other participants and to exhibit in a group show at the end of the residency. Each artist in residence will be asked to become an ambassador for the Regional art community during their stay. As ambassadors, the artists will be required to host open studio hours once a week at a time when the public can access their workspaces'.
