The Artist Studio Award Program is a critical part of the City of Vancouver’s efforts to provide studio spaces to support artists and their work since 1995.
The program is offered once every three years through an open call to emerging professional artists living in the City of Vancouver.
This year the program has expanded to include community members of the Musqueam, Squamish, or Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
|Next award term:||TBD|
|Application process:||summer 2021 (TBD)|
There are currently seven studios in the program:
- Two are work-only studios
- Five are live-work studios
The studios are awarded at significantly reduced rental rates, for a three-year term.
Professional artists who are residents of Vancouver or community members of the Musqueam, Squamish, or Tsleil-Waututh First Nations are eligible to apply.
You must be able to demonstrate artistic excellence and financial need.
The studios are awarded through a peer assessment review process organized by our Cultural Services department.
