The Artist in Residence program follows the traditional residency model, in which professional artists spend time creating work inspired by the environment, culture and people of Wood Buffalo. These Resident artists will engage with the community in a variety of ways, showcase their work through a final event and, most importantly, spend time mentoring a selected group of emerging, established and professional artists from this area. The program will be open to artists in any discipline.
Artist in Residence Program
This stream follows the traditional residency model in which non-local professional artists will spend 3 weeks creating art and engaging with the community through art. Opportunities include showcase events or performances and, most importantly, spending time mentoring a select group of emerging, established and professional artists from the same artistic discipline.
Suncor Indigenous Artist Program
Much like the Artist in Residence program, this stream follows the traditional residency model and is based on the same idea of creating art and engaging with the community through art. However, this stream will support an Indigenous artist living in Canada. This artist will have the opportunity to work with urban and rural Indigenous peoples as a mentor.
