In Residence Programs

Artist in Residence

New Central Library's 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. The resident is invited to work in the fourth-floor studio space at New Central Library and engage with the public through programs such as open studio time, interactive workshops, and lectures. They are invited to show their work at New Central Library or at community libraries, and are selected in partnership with arts and culture organizations.

Author in Residence

The Calgary Public Library invites applications for the position of Author in Residence for fall 2019, subject to funding approval. The residency is designed to champion the joy of reading, foster an understanding of the craft of writing and connect readers and writers.

Calgary Public Library, with financial assistance from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, has offered the Author in Residence program for over 30 years. Through this distinguished program, the Library has hosted many exceptional authors who have contributed to a strong and active literary community.
