February 2023 – The fifth annual City of Fredericton Summer Artist-in-Residence program will take place this year in two locations – the Fredericton Botanic Garden at Odell Park, and Killarney Lake Park.  The City is inviting artists to submit proposals for a residency at either location during July or August. Residency periods are for two weeks with a new option this summer for a one-month residency, each with a stipend of $500 per week.  Accommodations are not provided.

An artist works on a painting outside.

The program provides a unique opportunity for artists to move their studio outdoors into the natural surroundings of Killarney Lake’s wooded recreational park on the northside, or in the community-run Botanic Garden adjacent to Odell Park on the southside. Both locations are open and free to the public.

Artists are required to engage with park and garden users daily on site, and with the broader community through online activities. Artists will be active on social media with brief daily updates on their residency as well as occasional, in-depth activities such as a demo, artist talk, or workshop. Selected artists are free to move throughout the park or garden as part of their creative process and will be provided with portable lawn signs which will indicate that they are the ‘Artist in Residence’.

This residency is open to all artists working in any medium, however preference will be given to work that is conducive to community engagement. The artist is expected to be in residence Monday to Friday, for 6-8 hours daily.

Deadline:  March 10, 2023 at 4:30 pm. Artists will be notified by April 30.  Submissions can be sent by email:  culture@fredericton.ca
