Thematic Summer Residency: Placemaking

How do we understand a place? What are the social, cultural, political, historical, traditional, conceptual and personal dimensions that define place? How do these questions help artists to understand and explore the context in which they locate their research and work?

The Placemaking Residency allows participants to consider these questions and more in a community studio environment, supported by an exciting mix of visiting artists and scholars. Make a place for your practice, for your voice.

Fifteen to 20 residents will be selected by committee through an application process that outlines the individual’s research plan. The residents, in addition to independent studio work and research, will have access to a number of scholars and visiting artists through talks, panels and studio visits. Residents will have access to Alberta University of the Arts studio space, wood shop, metal shop, technician support and other facilities for an eight-week period.
