Artist Residency at Castle Ruins

Throughout the year HCR offers artist residencies at Castle Ruins. Emerging and established artists are encouraged to apply.

During Castle Ruins residencies artists are given the opportunity to live at Castle Ruins while working in the on-site studio or one of out a nearby satellite partner studios. In consultation with staff/the director, artists will be given access to studio space suited to their practice.

We encourage artists to experiment while in residency and will do our best to accommodate needs that arise during your stay. Artists are encouraged to share meals, studio space, and to collaborate with other artists present during the residency period.

During your stay we will offer to connect you with appropriate local galleries, museums, promoters, artist run centers, MTL based artists, and arts professionals. You will have the opportunity to arrange a closing talk, event, or studio visit.
