Banff Artist in Residence

Early Career 2024

Banff Artist in Residence (BAiR) Early Career is an immersive program of studio practice, creative exploration, critical feedback and mentorship for visual artists of all ages in the early stages of their careers.

Open to visual artists working across mediums, BAiR Early Career combines the artistic freedom of a self-directed residency with the supportive benefits of an organized program. As well as having the space to create, research and experiment, participants are part of a community of emerging artists committed to developing and expanding their practice.

Artists have access to shared production facilities and knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical support and assistance.

The residency experience is supported with lectures, workshops and individual studio visits with faculty as well as dialogue amongst peers.

What does the program offer?

Visual arts residencies offer a structured program where visual artists, curators and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes. Through peer interaction, discussion groups, studio work, formal lectures and studio visits from world-renowned visiting faculty, artists and curators, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and professional development of their work.

Artists are provided with a studio, accessible 24 hours a day, as well as access to our extensive facilities.
