Deer Lake Artist Residencies
Deer Lake artist residencies provide unique opportunities for emerging and established artists from various disciplines, cultures and locations to create and produce new work. Multiple disciplines are represented in the residency program–visual artists, theatre artists, musicians, land-based practitioners, poets, authors and more.
Residencies may include short-term housing, studio use or production, and can be as short as 6 days or as long as 4 months. Note exception is ceramics which is available only for 6 weeks starting early August and ending mid September. We may provide some equipment if needed, but we expect all artists to be self-sufficient.
Shadbolt and Burnaby Art Gallery staff will support you in creating artist-led community engagement projects relevant to your residency. These projects may include performances, public readings, artist talks, panel discussions or online engagements.
