NVRC announces new Artist Residency Program
North Vancouver, B.C. - North Vancouver Recreation and Culture (NVRC) is launching a new Artist Residency Program (ARP) which provides a range of opportunities for artists to work in the community, to design a wide range of arts-based projects and activities with various communities based on an artist’s area of specialty and to deliver creative projects that generate meaningful connections for participants as well as for the broader community. The ARP has three program streams: Creating Connections and the Community Residency.
NVRC has just announced a special Call for Artists for the Artist Residency Program that is open to artists who live or work in Metro Vancouver, BC, Canada. Interested artists, artist teams, or collectives are invited to submit a completed Application, indicating which of the three program streams they are interested in participating in: Creation Labs, Creating Connections and the Community Residency. Applicants may submit proposals to more than one program stream.
Contributing to the growing vibrancy of our neighborhoods, the ARP seeks to inspire participation and relationship-building where art (the process of creating together) acts as a catalyst for individual and community engagement. For more information, please join us for the upcoming Information Session.
