The Banff Artist in Residence program is designed for visual artists to focus on their own practice in a supportive learning environment. Participants are encouraged to explore new ideas, create, self-direct their research and time, and cultivate new directions in their work — all while surrounded by a community of peers within Banff Centre’s spectacular mountain setting.
The program encourages experimentation via access to a full suite of shared production facilities and knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical support and assistance. Ceramics, Sculpture, Photography, Printmaking, Papermaking and Digital Media production facilities will all be available for this program.
Participants have the opportunity to receive studio visits from program guest faculty and engage with the exhibitions and programming taking place at Walter Phillips Gallery. In addition, participants can share their work with other artists-in-residence, the broader Banff Centre community and the public.
What does the program offer?
The Banff Artist in Residence program allows participants to delve deeply into their practice while away from the constraints of everyday life. Participants are provided with a studio, accessible 24 hours a day, as well as access to our extensive facilities.
What length of residency is available?
This program is designed for participation over the entire program period. Variable dates will not be considered.

This residency is for visual artists with an exhibition/publication record, who have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers.
