Sparrow Artspace provides space (approx. 700 sq. ft.) to artists for exhibition, studio, workshops, performances or installation on a full monthly basis. Sparrow Artspace is located in the historic de Waal building in Bridgeland, 36 4th St. NE, Calgary.

We encourage applications from candidates who identify as part of racialized, Indigenous, and/or 2SLGBTQ+ communities. Art organizations are welcome to apply. Oral applications are excepted — I would love to meet with you and get to know more about what you do — please email to arrange a time to meet.

Sparrow values creativity, community and collaboration:

Creativity: Artists-in-residence explore their creativity by developing new work in the space and inspire creativity in others by showing their creative process.

Collaboration: Residencies are for two or more artists. Sparrow provides a space for something new to emerge when artists work together — either in a collaborative piece or simply by working side by side. Artists can apply as individuals if they are open to Sparrow looking for another artist to collaborate with.

Community: We encourage artists-in-residence to reach out to the community in a way that is unique to them, whether it be artist talks, workshops, demos, or collaborating with other artists.
