Open Studio Residency Program

Struts Gallery is excited to once again welcome applications from Canadian visual and media artists to participate in our annual Open Studio Residency Program. Artists-in-residence can continue their practice, develop new projects or site-specific work and are encouraged to creatively engage with the community through screenings, talks, workshops, or events. Residencies are five-weeks and with up to six slots available, beginning in the spring of 2022. Studio space is located in Struts Gallery with accommodations provided in our apartments on the 2nd floor above the gallery. Struts Gallery pays an artist fee of $3000 plus per diem, travel costs, and any materials associated with workshops or other public events. Artists-in-residence also have access to the centre’s media arts equipment and facilities.

Residencies are selected by a committee of Struts Gallery members.


Recognizing the impacts of colonialism, white supremacy, and all forms of systemic oppression, applications from artists with lived experience as Black, Indigenous, racialized, deaf, disabled, neurodivergent, and Queer/LGBTQIA2S+ will be prioritized throughout the selection process.
