VANS in Residence - Halifax - Wonder'neath - March 2021

This program provides a studio space, a stipend to support the artist to work full time for 4 weeks, and support from VANS and Wonder'neath in outreach. 60% of the time will be dedicated to the artist’s own work (creation, research or both) and 40% of the time will be dedicated to community based work, including hands-on workshops, studio visits, talks and presentations. Due to the current restrictions in place as a result of Covid-19, the outreach will need to be done by distance, either by packages sent out to families in the community, or by online workshops made available.

This VANS in Residence will take place from March 1 – 28, 2021. The planning week can take place anytime up to February 21, 2021.
This residency will provide time for the artist to have a period of work focused on their own practice, as well as engagement with youth and others in the community. The artist’s work can focus on research, development and/or the production of ongoing or new bodies of work. Projects that do not require access to specialized equipment are most suitable to the residency program. Artists are responsible for securing any additional specialized equipment. The outreach elements of this residency will be by distance.

A stipend of $2500 will be paid to the artist and a studio in the Wonder’neath Studios at 2482 Maynard St., in Halifax, NS.
