Banff Centre | Emerging Visual Artist Intensive Online






The Emerging Visual Artist Intensive is an immersive program of feedback, connection and mentorship for artists in the early stages of their careers. Participants will continue their practice from home, while being part of an online community of emerging artists each committed to developing and expanding their practice.  In addition, participants will receive a stipend to support the development of their work.

What does the program offer?
This online program will provide a discursive forum for visual artists to explore ideas in relation to their work, communities, geographic locations, and current societal conversations. Participants will form an online community of peers; share previous work with each other and continue work already in progress; partake in online studio visits; participate in conversations, presentations, and workshops; and engage with faculty and each other to develop ideas, insights, and connections that can be applied to the theoretical and practical development of their practice.  Please see the Itinerary section for an approximation of the program schedule. 

Who should apply?
This residency is for emerging artists who have completed university level training in visual arts (preferably within the last five years), hold an active exhibition record of at least two years in length, and/or show evidence of dedication in their pursuit of an artistic career.

Collectives of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

What Length of Residency is Available?
This program requires a dedicated commitment over a period of 3 weeks with the understanding that absence from weekly synchronous activities will be minimal and cannot be made-up. 

*Financial Aid of 100% of the tuition fee is available for this program for all accepted applicants.
* A Stipend of $750 is available to support the work of accepted applicants.
