OPEN STUDIO RESIDENCY

Struts Gallery welcomes applications from visual and media artists to participate in our annual Open Studio Residency Program. Artists are offered the freedom to continue their practice, develop a new project or site-specific work, and are encouraged to creatively engage with the community through at least one public event (artist talk, workshop, or another artist-initiated event). The Open Studio program aims to develop artists’ practices by supporting experimentation without the pressure to present a resolved body of work. The residency is artist-driven and independent, with staff assistance available for community outreach, technical and logistical support.

 

Residencies are five-weeks and with up to six slots available, beginning in the spring of 2023.

Struts Gallery pays an artist fee of $3000, $500 per diem, travel costs, and any materials associated with workshops or other public events.


STUDIO FACILITIES
Participants are provided with 24-hour access to a studio space in the gallery. The studio space is open to the public during regular operating hours. Artists in Residence also have access to the centre’s media arts equipment and facilities, including our extensive equipment holdings (click here for a full list).


APARTMENT
Artists-in-Residence stay in the Struts Gallery apartment, located on the second floor above the gallery. There are two flights of stairs that lead to the second floor. This private apartment is fully furnished and includes linens and towels, and basic kitchen amenities. Please note: There are no washrooms in the building that are wheelchair accessible, have safety grab bars or supports at this time. The nearest accessible washroom is at The Painted Pony about 500m away on Bridge Street. Our second floor is not wheelchair accessible. We sincerely apologize for these barriers.


Submission for 2023 are now closed. Check back in the fall of 2023 for info on 2024 residencies.
