DEADLINE:  JUNE 30, 2017 at 5:00pm.
The 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 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.
A panel of arts professionals will select the artists in residence based on the artistic merit and clarity of the application, the suitability of the project for SNAP facilities, as well as the impact the residency will have on the artist’s practice and the perceived potential impact of the artist on our community.

Interested applicants are asked to submit:
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Brief biography and artist statement
  • Letter of Intent describing how the time at SNAP would be used and the applicant’s artistic and/or academic goals for the next 2 or more years,
  • 10 images of previous work (jpegs should not exceed 300 dpi) and a
  • numbered slide list including media, size and date of production.
