Visual Arts Mississauga (VAM) invites emerging artists from Mississauga (18-29 years of age) to apply for its Creative Residency. VAM’s Creative Residency (VCR) is an opportunity for emerging youth artists in Mississauga to participate in a 6-month exhibitions program with a focus on mentorship and professional development.
VCR resident artists will be invited to access VAM’s art centre to develop their skills in art exhibition, education and engagement. The program will invite established arts industry mentors to provide a network and constructive feedback on the residents’ artistic practice and goals.
“VAM’s Creative Residency is the first of its kind in Visual Arts Mississauga’s 40-year history,” explains VAM’s Events and Exhibitions Coordinator Eldiana Begovic. “The program is our way to cultivate a culture in Mississauga and provide a platform for emerging youth artists to strengthen their skills and gain confidence as professionals. As a result, they will contribute to a vibrant arts City.”
The deadline for submission is Sunday, December 8. Click here for program details and a timeline.
