Artist-in-Residence

Artist in Residence

The Shadbolt Centre Artist-in-Residence Program provides opportunities for professional artists with a minimum of 5 years experience from all artistic mediums to work on both individual creative projects and to contribute to the development of their artistic discipline in the community.

Artist-in-Residence participants receive contributions on behalf of the Shadbolt Centre through in-kind support in the form of studio, rehearsal and performance space. Staff time and resources will be allocated on a case-by-case basis and in keeping with the selection criteria and committee.

All artistic projects should take in the unique flavour of the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts and its year-round arts programming, special events and live performances and establish their budgets and time-lines around this programming. Preference will be given to projects that enhance and support the activities of the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts and provide community benefit to the patrons of the Shadbolt and the citizens of Burnaby.

Types of Residencies:

Lab Time: Studio time for artists. This is done on a limited time basis and may assist but is not limited to the development of a creative project and/or studio time to rehearse and/or finish works-in-progress.

Creation Residencies: These are defined as residencies in which an artist requests studio time to develop new work with no public performance or presentation EXCEPT as a work-in-progress to the Artist-in-Residence committee & selection members. When appropriate, classes and/or showings may be made available to students at the Shadbolt Centre.

Development & Production or Presentation Residencies: These are defined as residencies in which an artist requests studio time to develop new work with the understanding that a professional performance and/or exhibit will be the result of the residency. The artist(s) will be expected to showcase their work-in-progress to the Artist-in-Residence committee & selection members and when appropriate, classes and/or showings may be made available to students at the Shadbolt. For Production residencies that result in a live performance in a theatre during the Shadbolt Centre’s performance season, the artists will be part of the season subscription series and be featured in the Shadbolt Season Brochure.
