Diefenbunker — Artist in Residence Program

Call for applications is open

Deadline: November 18, 2017 

http://diefenbunker.ca/artist-in-residence-program/ 

The Diefenbunker: Canada's Cold War Museum invites artists to submit applications for its 2018 artist residency. 

About the residency

The Museum welcomes one artist per year for a period of 3 to 6 months. The program is open to artists working in all media living within a 100 km of Ottawa. Works produced through the residency must have a connection to the Diefenbunker, the Cold War or related themes. 

The residency is not a live-in opportunity and artists must have their own means of transportation (there is no public transit to Carp). Artists are given full access to the Museum, its library, collection and archives, and on-site work can be discussed. 

The residency will culminate with an exhibition or a presentation of work completed during the residency as well as an artist-led tour of the exhibition or talk. 

A project fee will be paid to the artist.
