Applications now being accepted for Waterloo's 2017 Artist in Residence
(Waterloo, Ont. - Feb. 7, 2017) The City of Waterloo invites artists from across Waterloo Region to apply for the opportunity to be the 2017 Artist in Residence.
The City of Waterloo Artist in Residence program animates public spaces and explores community stories by providing opportunities for the public to work with local artists in the creation of a community art project. This year, the Artist in Residence program will support the City of Waterloo Neighbourhood Strategy development.
"This is a unique opportunity to explore the role art plays in community development," says Astero Kalogeropoulos, manager of arts and culture. "We look forward to having an artist work with a diverse range of community members to tell the stories of Waterloo's neighbourhoods."
During the residency, the Artist in Residence will develop a creative, inclusive, participatory community art project that explores neighbourhood identity and/or what it means to be a good neighbour.
In collaboration with program staff, the selected artist will establish a regular schedule of opportunities for community interaction through activities such as workshops and art collaborations, to take place between June 1 and Oct. 1, 2017.
Emerging and established artists living in Waterloo Region who work in various mediums are invited to apply. Applications will be accepted until Friday, March 31, 2017 by 4:30 p.m. For more information or to submit an application online, please visit www.waterloo.ca/artistinresidence.
