Open Call: Artist Residency on Vancouver Island




The Ou is an artist-run gallery and artist residency located on Vancouver Island on the beautiful West Coast of Canada. Our residency, The Ou-telier, is a self-directed experience; a quiet place to decompress, experiment, research, play, and make space to develop new ideas. 

What does the program offer?

Slow down and enjoy the Island life with us! Fall asleep to the sound of the creek running by and wake up to the green of thick ivy. 

Artists have 24/hr access to their dedicated studio space as well as a private bedroom in a shared suite with another artist. Each studio is approx. 8 x 8’ and located in an old boatbuilding workshop with open rafters and original fir floors. The studios have tables, easels, windows and plenty of wall space. We have hand tools and some shared supplies, as well as a photography darkroom with an enlarger. 

The accommodation has a large living room, kitchen, gas stove & patio. Each bedroom has a desk, linens for bed & bath, heat & hot water, Wi-Fi. Artists are responsible for cleaning their room, preparing their own meals & keeping common areas tidy

Who should apply? 

We welcome applications from emerging and established artists of all mediums and practice, and of all genders and identities. The space does not accommodate theatre performers or dancers.
