RESIDENCIES

Banff Artist in Residence 2D
June 4 – July 6
Application deadline: February 14

This program is a self-directed opportunity for artists to delve into the richness and diversity of studio-based practices in the mediums of photography, video, drawing, printmaking, painting, paper making, and textiles. Artists are encouraged to explore the function of these mediums in contemporary art practice, and pursue unconventional approaches to ideas, materials, and processes.


Banff Clay Revival
June 4 – July 6
Application deadline: February 14

This residency acknowledges the resurgence of clay in contemporary art as a material of sculptural practice. In an age of digital technology where we are often detached from materiality and process, artists are returning to the tactile and elemental nature of ceramics.


Indigenous Preparatorial Practicum
April 2, 2018 – March 29, 2019
Application deadline: February 21

The Walter Phillips Gallery Indigenous Preparatorial Practicum program enables the participant to engage in hands-on opportunities working alongside the gallery’s preparator and curator. Direct mentorship and support is provided throughout the program to develop the participant’s skills in preventative conservation, art handling, installation techniques, and museum standards in environmental conditions.

Seek retreat from the everyday and engage in an international community of artists from all disciplines for an intense period of creativity that defines summer at Banff Centre. BAiR Summer 2018 is a self-directed program in visual arts offering the space, time, and inspiration in which to make new work.


Outdoor School
July 23 – August 24
Application deadline: March 28

The Outdoor School residency will bring together visual artists with an interest in outdoor culture and recreation, field naturalist practices, experiential modes of learning, ecology, and the environment.
