ARTSPLACE is inviting applications from professional visual Artists* for the 2023/24 season.
We are seeking proposals from individual artists, collectives, or curators. ARTSPLACE supports a variety of artistic practices within contemporary visual arts. As a community arts organisation in a rural area, we are particularly interested in proposals that offer opportunities to connect the exhibitions/projects with the public.
We invite artists to combine a residency with their project/exhibition - residencies are unpaid (we do give financial assistance towards general expenses, and help with sourcing affordable accommodation), artists are encouraged to apply for additional funding to support residencies.
This program is generously supported through the Canada Council for the Arts and the Province of Nova Scotia.
