Call for Applications: Woodhaven Artist in Residence 2022

Woodhaven Artist in Residence
Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies UBC Okanagan

The FCCS Woodhaven Artist in Residence Program provides a paid residency opportunity for a diverse variety of visiting artists including writers, visual artists, digital media artists and performance artists.

This residency includes accommodation in a large two-bedroom home located at the Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre as well as full use of a studio on the property.

For the 2022 season, we invite applications from visual artists for a 4 to 8 week stay between July 1st and August 31st, 2022.

Artists who are engaged in visual arts, digital arts, performance, social and community-based artistic practices are invited to apply. We particularly encourage applications from BIPOC artists and those from marginalized groups that are traditionally underrepresented in ecologically-focussed creative practice.

Eligibility: This residency is open to Canadian and international artist. Payment is in Canadian dollars.

Please note: minimal equipment is available at Woodhaven. This residency is designed to engage primarily with the space at Woodhaven (which includes forested trails and a creek), although UBC’s Okanagan Campus (a 30-minute drive away from the residence location) features a staffed woodshop and metal shop, which can be booked ahead of time.

Deadline: March 18, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.
