Image: 2022 Artist in Residence, Vick Naresh, hosts an Artist Talk at the conclusion of his residency, moderated by HAC Program Coordinator, Megan.

In partnership with The Cotton Factory, Hamilton Arts Council offers an Artist in Residence (AIR) program. This opportunity is designed to support the individual artistic practices and professional ambitions of emerging and mid-career artists/creatives in Hamilton.


The AIR program provides a selected recipient with access to free studio space and associated benefits of being absorbed in the creative ecology of The Cotton Factory.


This is an exceptional opportunity for an individual to develop both their creative processes and professional skills in building a successful career in the arts.
