Artists in Residence

The North West River Artist-in-Residence Program takes place at the Labrador Institute Research Station at North West River, Labrador. The residency is open to artists of all disciplines (including visual arts, film, audio, music, theatre, writing and curatorship). The residency welcomes artists who wish to research, develop and/or produce ongoing or new bodies of work. Artists will be expected to make a community presentation (workshop, public lecture, studio tour, reading, for example). Subject to availability, residencies are from up to 4 to 12 weeks in duration. Submissions are reviewed on an ongoing basis.

For more information please contact Matthew Hills, Director, Grenfell Art Gallery.
