Call for Applications: SPAO Residency

The SPAO Residency provides mentorship, support and structure for professional photo-based artists to focus on the next level of their art practice. 

This 6-month residency is one of the most unique residencies of its kind. It is designed for visual artists who have previously completed formal training in visual arts and/or lens-based media and are ready to focus on an aspect of their existing career or on a specific upcoming project. As a self-directed residency, artists are afforded the time and environment needed to research, experiment, and produce an on-going body of work as a professional working artist. 

SPAO provides the physical space and regular consultations designed to meet the individual needs of our participants. Artists who complete the residency are offered the opportunity to exhibit their work in a yearly group exhibition at The SPAO Centre Gallery.
