Our Self-Directed Artist in Residency
The artist is provided with accommodations in our Teano Suite which is a one bedroom suite with an office space, private kitchen, bathroom and living room at the Caetani Centre in Vernon, BC . A detached studio in the backyard is also available at the added fee of $6/night and suitable for visual artists.

This residency is a multi-faceted experience that will include opportunities for teaching, community outreach, interaction with other artists, and studio care, and, for longer stays, can culminate in a solo exhibition of new work. Because of Covid we may need to be creative to meet these expectations.

Duration of residency
The Teano Suite is only available for three or six month durations. For shorter stays check out our Caetani Suite AIR program
