Summer 2019 fees: 

$1275 for single accomodation and $1150 for shared. Fees are in Canadian dollars. 

Spring 2019 fees are set out in the Artscape  link above.  Spring is a shorter residency in a setting  that is more economical then our summer offering.

We provide  letters of support for individual artists and are currently exploring funding options to defray your costs.

This fee plus HST  includes accommodation, several shared dinners, garden fresh produce, work and studio space, artist talks and an afternoon sharing of work in progress with visitors and guests at the end of the program.  In addition, residents typically contribute up to $100  (on average)  to food costs during the Residency.
