Visual Arts Residency

Please note: Applications for the Visual Arts Residency are now closed.

Our Visual Arts Residency supports artists in experimenting with their craft and developing their focus or testing new ideas, while also engaging in vital public dialogue. The work of BCA Visual Artist Residents has taken a broad range of forms, including dance and movement-based practices, theatre and writing-based practices, and artists engaged in installation, sound, and other innovative media.

Resources for the program include access to studio space, and additional professional and creative support.

The Visual Arts Residency puts special emphasis on supporting projects that involve direct engagement with the community – whether through collaborative activities, participatory public installations, performance, intervention or other imaginative activation. We seek proposed projects that have public interaction and participation as significant elements.
