SNAP’s Emerging AIR Program offers emerging artists and recent graduates the opportunity to work rent-free at the SNAP Printshop for a 6 month term. The residency is aimed at providing a new environment and stimuli for the artist to help expand her or his artistic practice. During the residency, artists are invited to give a lecture on their work and offer a workshop or demonstration of their specific technique(s). The program offers emerging artists a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with other print artists and discover Edmonton’s internationally acclaimed arts community while further developing their practice.
NOTE: The residency provides a rent-free studio space however monthly supply fees for consumables apply.
To maximize the potential for artistic growth, and to encourage the production of a body of work outside of a formal institution, an exhibition is a requirement of the residency. The exhibition directly follows the residency. The exhibition will occur in either SNAP’s community or studio galleries within 6 months of the end of the residency.
Residency terms run: September – February and/or January-June.
Deadline: June 30, 2018 by 5:00pm
