2022 Diefenbunker Artist-in-Residence program deadline Jan. 15
By Jake Davies - West Carleton Online
CARP – The deadline for the 2022 Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum Artist-in-Residence program is a little over a week away (Jan. 15).
“The museum welcomes one artist per year for a period of three to six months,” Diefenbunker staff released in a statement. “The program is open to artists working in all media and living within 200 kilometres of Ottawa. Works produced through the residency must have a connection to the Diefenbunker, the Cold War, or related themes.”
The residency is not a live-in opportunity and artists must have their own means of transportation. Artists are given full access to the museum, its library, collection and archives, and on-site work can be discussed.
“The residency will culminate with an exhibition, or a presentation of work completed during the residency, as well as an artist-led tour of the exhibition or talk,” staff said.
The artist will receive a CARFAC project fee.
“Applications must be received by midnight on Saturday, Jan. 15,” staff said. “We will acknowledge receipt of applications by email. A committee will make the selection and the successful applicant will be notified by Tuesday, Feb. 1.”
