 Sample Details for Setting up Artist-in-Residence Projects
return to Artist-in-Residence Projects General page

Artists from around the world will be invited to participate in residencies
 in group accommodation with workspace setup.
They will be required to share their artistic gifts and knowledge with the community
 by offering a minimum of the equivalent of around a half day per week
 in meetings, lectures, classes, and workshops
 to the local community
 while spending time each day engaging in their own work
 and living with other artists. 
Artists would be encouraged to also donate at least one work of art
 to the local program

for exhibition and fund-raising.


The people, town, businesses, government agencies, and educational resources of local communities
 are asked to welcome visiting artists, to engage them in lively interchange,
 and to take opportunity to share their local knowledge.
  Artists are asked to share in their love for the creation of art.
Visiting artists are asked to be inspired by the unique beauty of each region,
 to respect and accept the kindnesses and stories of the local people
 while they work to foster a relationship with the people in the many lands of the earth,
 contribute to the artistic, social, and economic development of the local area,
 and share in the pleasure that artistic expression brings.


 to create Artists-in- Residence Projects around the Globe.

Project creators should provide participants with contact information, detailed project information,  and directions to location:

For Example:Getting to Stewart

Summer or Winter
drive, bus or fly to Terrace,
then rent car or limousine service to Stewart
-ferry from Seattle or Alert Bay to Prince Rupert and rent car or bus to Terrace and rent car or limousine service to Stewart
- ferry to Ketchikan and fly to Stewart on Monday or Thursday when space is available on mail plane

Projects are usually designed for watercolor artists and other painters but residencies may be organized for other artists, writers, dancers, sculptors, and all other artistic and fine crafts disciplines. Artists may enquire to see if space is available so they may be accommodated if possible although appropriate studio space is not guaranteed or might require additional charges.   Other individuals could possibly book a residential retreat centre for use during cultural/scenic travel and exchange but priority will be given to artists who will be contributing to the social and artistic development of the local community.



Creators of a project should include details of the residency
including terms of residency(requirements and expectations),
 housing arrangements, and information about community activities.
t would be wonderful if outside funding could be found to make the program
 free to all artists and local resident participants if possible.


Cost of Residency: $300 per month per artist based on individual booking in dorm accommodation and includes utilities providing artists willing fill the pellet stove.  The house is approximately 40x70 feet with 3 bedrooms, sunroom, livingroom, diningroom, and kitchen.  The rooms all have work tables and there are additional tables for use in the large living room/workshop space.  There is seasonal work space available in an uninsulated building.  Artists in the North must provide funds for their own food, art supplies, transportation, and other expenses.

Or:   The residency  provides free accommodation but the artist  must provide 
funding to  cover the cost of utilities and a  maintenance fee to cover cleaning costs if the artist does not do their own. 


Others wishing to start similar projects are invited to
