Funding for Extended Projects

Artist-in-Residence Program

Residency programs provide hands-on learning opportunities for students through multiple-day, artist-led projects. Artists and teachers can work collaboratively to create arts infused curriculum, or ‘Art for Art’s sake’ programs. If you would like to book an artist for a project of three or more full days, but require financial assistance, you may be eligible to receive a financial subsidy. While these grants substantially cover the costs of MASC residencies, your school will be responsible for any remaining balance.

The Artist in Residence application form will be available October 1st 2018
Application Deadline: December 3rd, 2018
