Branscombe House

2021 Artist Residency

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

The City of Richmond Department of Arts, Culture and Heritage invites professional artists in all disciplines (including writers, composers, visual artists, musicians, theatre artists, video, multi-disciplinary, social practice and performance artists) to submit proposals for an 11-month live-in residency located on Canada’s west coast, in Richmond, B.C., on the traditional lands of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking peoples.

The Branscombe House residency will begin in mid-January 2021 and run through until mid-December 2021.

Branscombe House is a beautifully restored Edwardian style house located in the residential area of historic Steveston in Richmond. The self-contained two-bedroom suite upstairs is offered as an artist residence and studio with rent 100% subsidized in exchange for contributing approximately 240 hours of community-engaged work on approved creative projects or programs developed in collaboration between staff, artists, and community groups or organizations.

The City of Richmond is seeking applications from artists who are interested in developing new projects and programs that promote meaningful community engagement through artistic opportunities.

Artists with experience working with diverse communities are encouraged to apply. Artists that have historically been disadvantaged in professional artistic opportunities are encouraged to apply, including Indigenous, racialized, LGBTQ2S+ artists as well as artists living with disabilities.
