Description

INAUGURAL ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM AT THE BENTWAY: SOUND & THE CITY

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS RELEASED: January 7, 2019

DEADLINE: Friday, February 15, 2019
RESIDENCY DURATION: April – August 2019

The Bentway Conservancy is thrilled to announce our inaugural Artist Residency program. Each year The Bentway will support one self-directed onsite residency focused on advancing artistic experimentation around a specified project theme and discipline. Each residency will also respond to a key feature of the site.

The inaugural artist residency - Sound & the City - will focus on the acoustic environment of The Bentway. The hum of the Gardiner above, the rush of passing trains to the north, the occasional cannon blasts from the Fort York grounds and the general buzz from the surrounding city make The Bentway site rich acoustic territory. The selected artist or collective will be asked to explore The Bentway as an instrument, and to experiment with the varied sonic environments along its length.

Join The Bentway staff team for a comprehensive information session about the 2019 Sound & the City Artist Residency. This session will cover:

  • Background and theme
  • Eligibility
  • Residency support
  • Timeline
  • Process of selection
  • How to apply

The 2019 Artist Residency is presented by RBC.
