The following artists-in-residence are currently working alongside our community of studio renters, volunteers, and staff.
We offer four residency programs: research residencies, visiting residencies, scholarship residencies, and collaboration residencies.
Research residencies are intended for established artists who may not be familiar with printmaking, but intend to integrate print media into their existing practices. Research residents are given free access to the studio, workshops, and some materials.
Visiting residencies are intended for master printmakers from outside of Vancouver and provide a new environment and stimuli for them to expand their artistic practices. Visiting residents receive free access to the studio to complete a specific project. They are expected to informally share knowledge with other artists in our shared studio environment in any way they see fit.
Malaspina awards scholarship residencies to students in the form of free studio rent. Scholarship residencies are aimed at assisting recent graduates with their transition to becoming practicing artists.
We welcome proposals for collaboration residencies in which artists can hire a technician to produce prints in our studio.
