The CAAF Residency is a program offered by the Calgary Allied Art Foundation (CAAF)—a non-profit organization that supports and encourages the development of art and culture in Calgary. The residency program was developed to offer studio space to emerging artists in one to three-month durations.

Applications are accepted from current residents of Canada; however, we are unable to supply travel stipends or grant assistance for out of town artists. Preference will be given to artists residing in Alberta. A fee of $700/month is paid to artists upon completion of the residency. All residents are required to purchase an annual membership to CAAF; $10 will be taken from the stipend to pay for the membership.

The studio is located on the fourth floor of cSPACE King Edward. As a multi-disciplinary arts incubator, home to artists, non-profits and innovators, cSPACE is an arts hub offering ample opportunity for networking with other artists and like-minded individuals and groups.

CAAF Residency at cSPACE King Edward provides residents with an excellent opportunity to make contact with other working artists. During your residency, there may also be opportunities for exhibition, programming and open studio hours. All artists selected for the CAAF Residency are expected to undertake this opportunity professionally, respecting the studio space and their neighbours while acting as a representative of CAAF.
