Performing Arts Creation Residencies

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Banff Centre is committed to the commissioning, development, and production of new works in all major performance disciplines, and encourages bold collaborations across disciplines. Performing arts residencies are designed for artists to work on the initial creation phase of a new work in one or more of our studio spaces.

Artists may stay for the entire period or for one of the two weeks. Additional dates are available in winter and spring, as well as during the Dance Artist in Residence program.

What does the Program Offer?

This residency offers a range of workspaces and facilities depending on participants’ needs and availability. Banff Centre provides limited production support for these residencies. Additional technical support may be negotiated when possible. Partial residencies may be available.

Who Should Apply?

We invite project proposals from individual artists, artistic collectives, and companies of all sizes. Artists with projects at various stages of development are encouraged to apply—whether at the conceptual, creation, development, refinement, or redevelopment stage of a new work.

Shorter residencies may be available. Please inquire for details.
