Artist in Residence

The Assiniboine Park Conservancy is inviting artists to submit expressions of interest for a five month Artist-in-Residence program at Assiniboine Park. 

Made possible with support from Boeing Canada.

The goal is to provide Park visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn about, and be inspired by environmental art in a way that increases awareness about environmental issues and motivates them to take personal action at home and in their communities.

The Artist-in-Residence will create an environmental art installation in the hummocks area of the Nature Playground at Assiniboine Park, engage with Park visitors, and facilitate workshops for children and youth. The residence will run from May to September 2017. 

Artists wishing to be considered must complete our online application form and submit a complete application proposal. Please download the Artist in Residence Call for Proposals, which contains additional information about the program as well as detailed instructions regarding application proposal requirements.
All applications must be submitted online on or before January 31, 2017 at 4:00 pm.
Incomplete, late, faxed or emailed applications will not be accepted.

Deadline – January 31, 2017 at 4:00 pm
