Achieve your artistic vision. Imagine no cooking, no cleaning, no interruptions, just mountains of inspiration. The Banff Centre offers self-directed residencies for Aboriginal artists, enabling the time and space for focused work and providing the freedom to conceptualize, create, research, or complete a project.
Self-directed residencies are open to dancers, choreographers, musicians, composers, singer-songwriters, filmmakers, writers, playwrights, and curators. Residencies can be of any duration and artists can apply to come any time.
During a residency, artists can anticipate interacting with other artists in residence, attending performances and events, and enjoying the natural beauty of Buffalo Mountain situated in the heart of Blackfoot and Stoney territories and Banff National Park.
Financial assistance is available to Indigenous artists for self-directed residencies. For more information, call 1-800-565-9989 or see How to Apply.
