The City of Kelowna’s 3rd Annual Artist-in-Residence Program Now Open for Applications

The third annual Artist-in-Residence program is now open in Kelowna and artists are encouraged to apply.

Artists from all disciplines, including performing arts, digital and electronic arts, visual arts, literary arts and/or musicians are invited to submit entries.

Anyone who has lived in the central Okanagan for more than a year can apply for the 10-week residency, however, the artist or artist collective will be required to work in Kelowna for the duration of the project.

Art should address the theme of social inclusion and engage with the local community.

Interested artists or artist collectives can learn more about the program and the application process during one of the next two free virtual information sessions. Registration is required.
