Call to Artists: City of Victoria Artist in Residence 2022-2024

Call to Artists – City of Victoria Artist in Residence

The Artist in Residence program gives a professional artist the opportunity to work collaboratively with the community, City staff, and the Art in Public Places Committee to identify and develop an art plan over a two-year term.

The program is open to mid-career professional artists working in visual media (painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, crafts, photography, film, and video), music, performance, and literary art. The artist must be a resident of British Columbia. All applications are reviewed by a selection panel and shortlisted applicants undergo an interview process with the City’s Art in Public Places Committee.
