Artist in Residence

Bringing art into the Library.

Our three seasonal Artists in Residence are paid community engagement residencies that support artists, collectives, and arts organizations working in Indigenous art and placemaking, children's art and illustration, or the Newcomer experience.

Residents work in a designated space at Central Library and engage with the public at libraries across the city.

From narratives that she loves to guides on living creatively and sharing your art with the world, these titles have helped Natalia develop throughout her artistic practice. As she works on her residency project, they are also key points of reference to inspire her work.
