Eligibility:

Overview

Independent residencies in the Leighton Artists Studios offer you the ability to delve into your work as a solitary, self-directed retreat, as well as the option to engage within the larger artists’ community at Banff Centre through daily campus interactions, and attending talks and shows.

The nine unique studios are each designed by a distinguished Canadian architect and provide a perfect setting for individuals and collectives from a wide variety of artistic genres to create new work. Leighton artists contribute significantly to culture and the arts in Alberta, throughout Canada, and around the world.

What does the program offer?

The studios provide all the amenities necessary for you to immerse yourself completely in your work. Each is fully furnished and equipped with a computer (PC or Mac subject to availability), printer, wi-fi, kitchenette, washroom, and telephone. Three studios have pianos, three can accommodate writers, and two are designed with storage, lighting, and flexible space to accommodate visual artists. The studios appeal to a variety of disciplines; some are large enough to accommodate collaborative projects.

Although all studios are equipped with kitchenettes, artists do not live in their studios; on-site accommodation and meal plans are provided separately. 

Leighton Artists Studio stays are self-directed residencies with little access to facilities outside of the studios. Access to limited technical support, equipment, and additional facilities may be available on a rental basis. Please submit specific requests when you apply. If your project requires significant support, please consider applying through one of our other artist in residence programs in Performing Arts, Music, and Visual Arts.  

Who should apply?

Artists with a professional standing in their field and emerging artists of promising talent are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted from artists in a variety of discplines: writers, composers, singer-songwriters, visual artists, screenwriters, playwrights, literary translators, curators, art theorists, and professionals working in theatre, dance, and film at the conceptualization or research stage of a project. 

Leighton artists have created novels, poetry, plays, songs, chamber works, and operas. They have choreographed dance and music theatre, curated exhibitions and shows, and have created important visual art, films, new media, and television programming. 

Please note, preference is given to successful applicants who have not accessed the Leighton Studios previously. Past participants are asked to wait at least one year before applying again. If your application was unsuccessful previously, you may submit a new application but it must be for a new project.

September 1 - October 24, 2019 and November 17, 2019 - March 31, 2020 (no availability between October 25 - November 16, 2019).

About us:

TATVA is a therapeutic retreat situated in one of the most scenic parts of North Goa in India. Basically the retreat is a big villa built in the Portuguese/Goan style and situated in a quiet and tranquil rural village, which is a farming and fishing community. We are situated on an island with lovely walks all around and many rivers. lakes and rice paddy fields. Our nearest town, which is only 5 minutes away, is called Aldona. It's charming and according to the locals (who are obviously a bit biased!) is the most beautiful village in the world! See - https://www.inditales.com/aldona-goa-beautiful-village-world/

About the residency:

The idea of the residency is to support residents explore themselves and their work; with the goal of empowering them to gain insight into their emotions and their views of the world; plus enable them to express themselves in their chosen creative genre. The residencies are intimate in nature, with between 1 to 6 people attending for 1 to 4 weeks; we also welcome couples and/or partners. We have a basic weekly programme; which includes two or three one to one sessions with a psychotherapist, work sharing/co-creation meetings with local artists (we collaborate with local artists and often take our residents to meet them in their homes/studios; or they come to TATVA to speak with our residents), some group work which takes the form of discussions and peer support in the event that there are other artists staying with us at the same time as you. The retreat has a distinct family atmosphere; which is also a safe space to emote and create. We cook, eat, laugh, discourse and work together; as well as giving each resident the space and privacy they require. There is no requirement on producing any work by the end of your stay; however if artists wish we can also organise local exhibitions for them to showcase their work. A detailed description of the residency can be found if you click on this link . We provide breakfast and either lunch or dinner daily; also we take residents out on excursions to places of interest, depending on what they'd like to see and know more about. There is room both inside and out for artists to create; as we have an attic studio and a big roof top veranda. We also have a garden and many areas and locations of local natural beauty. We advise artists to bring their own materials, as we only have the basics here; however we can help you source most materials in Goa once you arrive if you prefer. Residents also have free time to explore Goa; or just simply relax with the opportunity of immersing themselves in the Goan life. We will take you to areas and events in Goa that most visitors don't see or do; which are picturesque and/or interesting - these include season specific activities such as waterfalls, beaches, interesting cultural events, museums, galleries, heritage sites and architectural Portuguese and Goan gems. We help curate every aspect your stay which entails helping organise additional external activities such as yoga sessions, movement/body work workshops, flora and fauna treks, meditation, massages, wildlife and bird watching, boat trips etc.
