Artist studio residencies in parks and park facilities
Over 50 artists creating in 13 parks citywide
Evolving from a pilot project in 2011, the Vancouver Park Board artist studio residencies program now includes over 50 artists (solo or part of collectives) that work out of field houses, park facilities, marinas, and community centres.
The program provides free work-only studios for artists until January 15, 2015 in exchange for community arts-based engagement.

Art: a catalyst for building vibrant, engaged communities
With free studio space in exchange for community arts-based engagement, artists can:
- Pursue their current art making directions and try new things without the constraints of studio cost
- Engage, provoke, and grow participation in the arts through imaginative social encounters with the community
- Connect with other artists who also work in this field of practice to grow this form of participatory arts-engagement
