Mitchell Art Gallery is inviting Canadian and international artists to apply for the second year of the MAG Summer Residency programme. Applicants with interdisciplinary, non-traditional creative practices are encouraged to apply. The residency runs for four to six weeks, taking place between 15 May – 15 August 2020.
The residency works to support an artist with space and time to initiate or further a body of work, and bridge their practice with a local community, whether a project connects to a relevant local issue or history, or has participatory or socially engaged elements. The residency is intended for artists interested in the reciprocal learning opportunity from encountering a community or public, with the MAG as the home base for those encounters.
The MAG summer residency programme covers return travel to and from the residency, as well as accommodation, a presentation or workshop fee and the gallery as studio space (over 1200 square feet). Artists with families are invited to apply and children or spouses will be accommodated in housing arrangements.
