RBC Emerging Visual Artists Program Call

Becoming a successful artist is about more than innate ability; it is a purposeful combination of opportunity, meaningful hard work and mentorship.

The RBC Emerging Visual Artists Program (RBC EVAP) provides an opportunity for emerging visual artists in Calgary to develop their artistic practice; to showcase their work to the public through exhibitions, open studio and speaking engagements; and to hone their professional skills in order to build a solid foundation for a successful career.

RBC EVAP artists will participate in the following sessions:

  • Four professional development sessions (such as financial planning, grant writing, how to improve artist statements and bios, networking, etc.)
  • One-on-one mentorship opportunities with Arts Commons’ visual and media arts curator
  • Group mentorship sessions with established artists and curator
  • Two panel discussion events that connect emerging artists with local galleries and arts professionals
