CAAF 2021 Studio Residency

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

We are pleased to announce that, in addition to CAAF’s cSPACE residency, we are partnering with nvrlnd. Arts Foundation to expand our residency programs in 2021. With aligning ethos of creating accessible studio space for artists, it is a natural fit for our organizations to come together to strengthen the arts within Calgary.

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.

CAAF Residencies provide residents 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.

We are accepting applications for 2021.
Deadline: Monday, November 8, 2020

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.

CAAF is committed to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable community where all staff, volunteers, and artists feel valued and respected regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education or disability. We are committed to accommodating all applicants to the best of our ability and will work one-on-one with applicants who experience barriers.
