Art for Social Change Public Art Residency Info Session Online

Applying for the Art for Social Change Public Art Residency? You can find more information and advice in this online and on-demand information session.

Calgary Arts Development is offering a five-month artist residency focused on the topic of social change. This opportunity is open to artists with a demonstrated history of working in public art and will tie into the Living a Creative Life Congress in November 2024.

This residency is intended to provide creatives working in public art the opportunity to explore new ways of addressing social change within the public realm. Opportunities may present themselves through new mediums, research, collaboration and community engagement.

During this residency, artists will have the opportunity to engage in discussions with local and international community partners whose work addresses social change. This will help further develop their artistic practice and build community.

Be sure to read the full guidelines and apply by 4:30pm MT on January 5, 2024.
