Artist in Residence

About the Artist in Residence Program

The Artist in Residence program aims to provide the opportunity for a professional artist to work collaboratively with City staff and the community to identify and develop creative artworks and projects, and augment capital projects over a two-year term.

The Artist in Residence is embedded in the City’s planning process, providing a unique creative and collaborative approach to enhance the value and aesthetic appeal of upcoming capital projects in Victoria, while broadening community involvement in the arts.

The program is open to professional artists who are residents of British Columbia.   All applications are reviewed by a selection panel, and shortlisted applicants undergo an interview process with the City’s Art in Public Places Committee. 

Stay tuned for the next Call to Artists for applications. To learn more about the program, view the 2019 information session presentation here, and read our Frequently Asked Questions.
