The North Pacific Cannery and the Prince Rupert Community Arts Council are hosting two artist-in-residence programs during 2024. The Artist-in-Residence program provides opportunities for two artists to live and work at the North Pacific Cannery during a 9-day residency (“Short Residency”) and an 18-day residency. (“Long Residency).
The Long Residency is open to any professional artist with formal training or equivalent experience and recognition among their peers. The Short Residency is open only to emerging and established artists living and working in Northern British Columbia. The artists are provided with accommodation and studio space.
An honorarium of $5,000.00 for the Long Residency and $1,250.00 for the Short Residency is given to offset the cost of materials, shipping, day to day living expenses and travel. Artists-in- residence must give one public presentation, performance or workshop during their residency.
Note: We will be accepting applications from both visual artists and artists in other disciplines such as writers or musicians.
The Prince Rupert Community Arts Council wishes to thank the BC Arts Council for their generous Arts and Culture Resilience Supplement Awards.
