Artist in Residency
The Wood Buffalo Artist in Residency (AIR) program is a mentorship opportunity for emerging artists to learn and build on their artistic techniques, as well as their professional portfolios.
The 2017 AIR program will be selecting one Canadian professional artist to mentor up to eight emerging artists for 10 weeks. The artist mentor will start June 1 to begin preparations for the emerging artists who will start their residency June 8. Throughout the program, participants will also lead six community art workshops in various communities throughout the Wood Buffalo Region, and showcase their artwork in a final group exhibition. The residency will conclude Aug. 24.
The Call for Mentor will open on January 19, and the Call for Emerging Artists will open March 6.
