The Salt Spring Arts Council (SSAC) and the Artist in Residence steering committee have announced the second year of the Artist in Residence (AiR) Program on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
The Artist in Residence (AiR) Program provides an opportunity for artists to work in the vibrant arts environment of Salt Spring Island. The program is open to all professionals working in the arts, in any genre or medium, at any stage of their careers. AiR encourages applications from artists of diverse cultural and regional backgrounds. The intent is to provide the time and space for creativity and productivity and to introduce visiting artists to Salt Spring Island and its arts community.
Residencies will be awarded based on available facilities, potential links to the Salt Spring community, collaborative opportunities and artistic merit. Applications for the AiR program can be submitted on or before April 15, 2017 for tenure between October 2017 and April 2018.
