Applications are open for the Alberta Artist in Residence, an ambassador for arts and culture in the province.
The Artist in Residence program will coincide with Month of the Artist this September, to showcase Alberta-based talent while raising awareness of the value and contributions of artists in the province. The program has an emphasis on an arts ambassador role to strengthen promotion and support for artists in Alberta.
“This year, we have embraced the power of art to keep us entertained, inspired and connected,” said Leela Sharon Aheer, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women. “Alberta’s government is committed to ensuring artists can continue to create, celebrate and share our province’s talent. I am excited to open applications for the Alberta Artist in Residence program, and work with these creative minds to promote the arts and engage communities across the province.”
Alberta’s Artist in Residence will be announced in September, as part of Month of the Artist in the province. The selected artist will receive a grant of up to $50,000 to support the art project and related activities. The program is open to artists of any discipline including, but not limited to, dance, film, literary, music, theatre or visual arts.
