Program Description

At THE INTERGENERATIONAL LGBT ARTIST RESIDENCY we believe it is imperative to create opportunities to connect new dots, cross-pollinate, have intergenerational conversations, be students together, debate. This is a reciprocity and investment, simultaneously. Residents are provided a food stipend, private bedroom with linens, and shared studio space. Guest curators art writers and gallerists are invited to studio visits with residents, who can present them with works in progress, questions, feedback requests or shared research interests. Facilities include a small wood shop, a darkroom, large common kitchen, and three large studios which will be shared amongst the five residents. Facility is physically accessible, including several ramps into the building, as well as washrooms (some, not all). Please message us if you have any additional needs, questions or concerns about access.
