Artist in Residence

About Artist in Residence (AiR)

The Artist in Residence Program (AiR) provides an opportunity for artists to create arts-based community engagement through projects and activities that have a meaningful impact to residents of all ages and abilities, in exchange for live-work studio housing. The program's purpose is to enhance community cultural development and pride of place by activating and animating neighbourhoods, public facilities, and parks through programming and community engagement activities that focus on topics of interest to our community.

The residencies are based on terms of approximately three years. In exchange for a minimum number of hours of community engagement programs and activities in approved project(s), artists are offered a lease for the space at no charge to be used only as an active live-work studio and house. The Artist in Residence Program (AiR) is supported through the Maple Ridge Public Art Steering Committee and operated by Recreation Services.
