Reclaim Artist Residency, Haliburton School of Art + Design

Reclaim Artist Residency is an opportunity for established artists to work in the Haliburton Highlands for a 6 - 8 week period between June and August.

Interested artists are invited to submit proposals that will detail how they plan to work with the local landfill as part of their art practice. Reclaim Artist Residency hopes to attract artists seeking to create art that shares their knowledge, respect and understanding of recycling and waste management. The residency is also intended to educate the greater community on the impact of the landfill on our environment. How this will be achieved should be included in the submission.

The selected artist will be provided with a studio space at the Haliburton Campus. The studio will be open to the public enabling the community to visit the artist’s studio, view work in progress and ask questions. Artists are welcome to access college equipment. Artists are responsible for their own consumable supplies. Artists are also expected to provide one public lecture to the college community.

Concluding the residency, there will be a public display of the artist’s work in the community and one piece will be donated to HSAD’s annual Faculty Art Auction. All proceeds from the Art Auction are directed to bursaries for students attending arts programs at the Haliburton Campus.

Deadline is April 24, 2017
