The Banff Artist in Residence (BAiR) program is designed for visual artists to focus on their practice in a supportive learning environment. Participants are encouraged to self-direct their research and time, as well as cultivate new directions in their work. The experience of artists in residence is further supported through individual studio visits with guest faculty and dialogue amongst peers.

Banff Artist in Residence 2D is a program for artists working in the mediums of analog and digital photography, drawing, printmaking, painting, and paper making. Access to the Photography, Printmaking, Papermaking, and Digital Media production facilities will be available, as well as the Woodshop. The program encourages experimentation via access to shared production facilities and knowledgeable staff who are available to provide technical support and assistance.

Participants have the opportunity to receive studio visits from program guest faculty and engage with the exhibitions and programming taking place at Walter Phillips Gallery. In addition, participants can share their work with other artists-in-residence, the broader Banff Centre community, and the public.

This residency is for visual artists with an exhibition/publication record, who have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. Applicants must be currently residing in Canada.
