The Wood Buffalo Artist in Residency (AIR) program is a mentorship opportunity supporting local emerging artists in the development of their artistic and professional practices. This annual program is offered during the summer months and includes access to free studio space, mentorship from an established Canadian artist(s), and an opportunity for a final exhibition. AIR participants are also encouraged to lead free creative workshops in rural communities within Wood Buffalo.

The program has been modified in response to feedback from the community. In 2018, AIR will be delivered through a series of one-week Master Classes.

You have an opportunity to provide input on which Master Classes are offered! A summary of the proposed classes can be found HERE. You are invited to vote for classes that you would be most interested in and likely to register for. Don’t delay! Final selection will take place by the end of April, and the 2018 Schedule of AIR Master Classes will be announced in May. Need to get in touch? Contact the Community Strategies Branch at or by phone at 780-743-7966.
