Residency Programs

Artist in Residence

Central Library's new Artist in Residence programs are three-month, paid community engagement residencies that support individual artists, arts organizations, and collectives working in three specific genres: Indigenous art and place making, children's art and illustration, and the Newcomer/New Canadian experience.
