THE NATIONAL RESIDENCY AWARD

So many artists are trying to fit their practice into the hours outside of their day job. Many are setting up “studios” on their living room floors or dining room tables. At Spark Box Studio we offer artists time and space to focus on their work in an encouraging and supportive environment.

Imagine one full month to get a new project off the ground. One full month to think only about creating your work. One full month without distractions. This is what Spark Box Studio is offering to artists living and working in Canada: one full month at the Spark Box Studio Residency where you will be given a studio space and living space for FREE. In addition the selected artist will receive a $1,000 bursary which Spark Box Studio owners Chrissy and Kyle are offering in memory of their dear friend and artist Donald Dawson.

This residency opportunity is a unique way for established and emerging artists to cultivate new ideas, access a rich library of arts resources, and focus on their career.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL AWARD

One artist will receive a month-long residency at our studio in Prince Edward County, plus the $1,000 Dawson bursary. The selected applicant will be granted a semi-private studio space and given access to the Spark Box Studio equipment and resources, as well, the winner will be provided with living accommodations for their month-long stay.

When you come to stay at Spark Box Studio, you will receive a bedroom, a 150 square foot dedicated semi-private studio space and access to our print facilities. We are open to artists working in a variety of materials and process ranging from the visual arts to literature to film making to music. We encourage applicants to review our blog and see the types of artists we have had work here. We are open to most processes so long as the applicant feels their project is suitable for our studio space and environment (please keep in mind we are a non toxic studio).

Deadline: February 1, 2018.
Who can apply: Canadian residents.
