Kingsbrae International Residence for the Arts (KIRA) will award up to fifteen artists with one month residencies in St. Andrews, New Brunswick Canada. Artists will be provided with an individual studio space, comfortable housing, up to two prepared meals each day and a stipend. Artists will live on a historic property in a beautiful seaside town and work in studios located on the property. The residence is within walking distance of the down town, however artists should bring all materials needed for their creative process when they arrive, as supplies and provisions are limited in town. As part of the residency, artists will be asked to engage with the community weekly during Open Studio Days. During this time the artist will be expected to share their weekly progress and present to the visiting public a final Artist Experience the last week of residency.
