Artist-in-Residence Program – City of Port Coquitlam
The City of Port Coquitlam invites Metro Vancouver artists to apply for the Artist-in-Residence program in 2020-2021. The Leigh Square Artist-in-Residence program is a self-directed residency offering artists the opportunity to research, develop, and produce new or ongoing bodies of work with dedicated studio time. The Artist-in-Residence program offers opportunities for artists to work in the community, to develop arts-based engagement activities, and to deliver creative projects that generate meaningful connections. Our residencies are open to artists or artist collectives working in the visual, performance, literary, and musical arts. New in 2020 we are also offering an Eco-arts residency in Lions Park. The City of Port Coquitlam Artist-in-Residence program does not offer a live-in residency, and takes place in a community centre setting with shared studio resources. Artists interested in the program should live or work in Metro Vancouver, BC, Canada, within reasonable commuting distance from the facilities. In exchange for studio space, artists facilitate public workshops and outreach programs for the local community as part of their residency. The duration of the residencies vary for the following program terms: February 3 – June 26, 2020; July 22 – November 19, 2020; February 1 – June 25, 2021; Eco-arts residency in Lions Park April 6 – October 5, 2020.
