Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

With Funding
Banff, Canada


As we re-open campus and welcome artists back to programming in a safe and mindful way, we have made the difficult decision to restrict recruitment for on-campus programs to those currently residing in Canada. We continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to the future relaxation of travel measures that will allow us to welcome international artists once again.

Number of Participants

This residency is for visual artists with an exhibition/publication record, who have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. This program is designed for participation over the entire program period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Program Description

The Banff Artist in Residence program is designed for visual artists to focus on their practice in a supportive learning environment.

Access to the Photography, Printmaking, Papermaking, and Digital Media production facilities will be available, as well as the Woodshop. The program encourages experimentation via access to shared production facilities and knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical support and assistance.
