Craft + Emerging Media Residency - 2018

Moving forward, merging media + craft

Craft + Emerging Technologies


The Alberta College of Art and Design is seeking an Artist in Residence with a particular interest in using both digital technologies and traditional craft media within their artistic practice for a 3-6 week program beginning 13th of February 2018. This residency provides an artist the opportunity to integrate their studio research and practice within ACAD’s School of Craft and Emerging Media. In addition to support from studio technicians and the residency coordinator, the artist-in-residence will have access to a private studio space, as well as to ACAD’s robust craft and fine art facilities.  
Interested parties should submit a project proposal and related budget for a self-directed residency that offers to make a significant contribution to contemporary craft. 
Applications are sought from mid-career and emerging artists interested in undertaking  research in contemporary craft and emerging technologies. To be considered for the program, applicants are expected to have achieved international recognition for their work, and have attained an MFA or equivalent. Teaching and/or instructor experience is desirable. The selected applicant will receive a substantial honorarium (dependant on a budget proposal), accommodation subsidy, private studio space, access to the College’s resources and onsite exhibition space.  
An integral facet of the residency is the artist's engagement with students, faculty and the local community. The artist is expected to provide studio demonstrations and critiques for both undergraduate and graduate students, a mandatory public artist talk, with optional exhibition.
