ABOUT THE STREAMS
Artist in Residence Program
– This stream follows the traditional residency model in which non-local professional artists will spend 3 weeks creating art and engaging with the community through art. Opportunities include showcase events or performances and, most importantly, spending time mentoring a select group of emerging, established and professional artists from the same artistic discipline.
Suncor Indigenous Artist Program
– Much like the Artist in Residence program, this stream follows the traditional residency model and is based on the same idea of creating art and engaging with the community through art. However, this stream will support an Indigenous artist living in Canada. This artist will have the opportunity to work with urban and rural Indigenous peoples as a mentor.
