Artist in Residence

The purpose of the artist in residence program is to offer recent graduates and /or qualified craftspeople the opportunity to use studio space. Participants must be self-directed, must be able to work independently, must conduct themselves in a professional manner and must be able to work within a cooperative environment.

Being an artist in residence offers many opportunities including business skills development workshops, marketing and promotional opportunities, as well as instructing courses and workshops.
