RBC Emerging Artist Residency Program 2022: Call for Emerging Artists

The Robert McLaughlin Gallery is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2022 RBC Emerging Artist Residency.

 The RBC Emerging Artist Residency is a paid residency opportunity for emerging artists supported by the RBC Foundation’s Emerging Artist Project. The residency package presents artists with opportunities for professional growth, exhibition experience, and collaboration with RMG staff. We are currently accepting applications for early career artists, age 35 and under, who want to take ownership of this unique residency space and engage with the public.

Gallery A and the RBC Artist Incubator Lab are innovative exhibition and studio spaces within The Robert McLaughlin Gallery that support community activation and provide artists with professional development opportunities. The Artist Incubator Lab is a space for creativity and experimentation that strives to support the local arts ecosystem. It is designed for artists with the desire and ability to use our studio facilities and who are within commuting distance of the gallery. While in residence, artists are encouraged to create new work, generate bold ideas, have vision, and make meaningful connections with our visitors and our community. Ideally, artists are able to commit to onsite work for 15-20 hours per week. While the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2022 is unpredictable, we will work with each artist to ensure their comfort and safety during the period of their residency.

All applications are due June 6, 2021 at 11:59 pm EST. 


The Robert McLaughlin Gallery is committed to equal opportunity for all applicants. We encourage applications from members of visible and invisible minority groups, women, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons across the spectrums of sexual orientation and gender identities. If there are ways we can remove barriers to the application process, please let us know and we will work with you to meet your needs.
