This summer YYZ is running a month-long directed mentoring and educational residency for emerging visual artists, independent curators, and new Canadians with professional arts training who live beyond the downtownwn core. Through a series of facilitated seminars, studio visits, and critiques, participants have the chance to further their practice, make connections, and develop a body of work for exhibition.
Come the new year I'm thrilled to be spending three months at the Taipei Artist Village in Taiwan!
I've spent a lot of time in Asia over the years and I feel like this opportunity will really let me delve into a body of work that is both completely new and immediately responsive, and in another sense has been waiting to emerge for some time now.
Travel grants assist Canadian professional independent artists to travel for events or activities important to the development of their artistic practice or career.
We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $157 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 157 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
