Artist in Residence Program

The FCCS Woodhaven Artist in Residence Program provides a paid residency opportunity for a diverse variety of visiting artists including writers, visual artists, digital media artists and performance artists. Artists will stay between 2 – 4 weeks at our Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre in the summer months.

We accept applications from artists or writers who are engaged in visual arts, digital arts, performance, social and community-based artistic practices. We particularly encourage applications from BIPOC artists and those from marginalized groups that are traditionally underrepresented in ecologically-focussed creative practice.

This residency includes accommodation in a large two-bedroom home located at the Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre as well as full use of a detached studio on the property.  The visiting artist/writer/performer will be expected to spend time on their own artistic practice as well as part of their time on public outreach.
