Artist in Residence and Suncor Indigenous Artist Programs

The Artist in Residence Program and Suncor Indigenous Artist Program follow the traditional residency model, in which non-local or local professional artists spend time creating work inspired by the environment, culture and people of Wood Buffalo. These resident artists engage with the community in a variety of ways, showcase their work through a final event and, most importantly, spend time mentoring a selected group of emerging, established and professional artists from this area. The program is open to artists in any discipline.

Artist in Residence Program

This stream follows the traditional residency model in which non-local or local professional artists will spend 3 to 4 weeks creating art and engaging with the community through art. Opportunities include showcase events or performances and, most importantly, spending time mentoring a select group of emerging, established and professional artists from the same artistic discipline.

Suncor Indigenous Artist Program

Much like the Artist in Residence program, this stream follows the traditional residency model and is based on the same idea of creating art and engaging with the community through art. However, this stream will support an Indigenous artist living in Canada who has an artistic career in any discipline.
