Thursday, December 1, 2016   (0 Comments)

Banff Research in Culture (BRiC) — a research and art production residency program of Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity designed for scholars and artists engaged in advanced theoretical exploration of topics in culture — invites artists, researchers, thinkers, and architects to imagine the world 50 years from now, encouraging active interrogation of concepts we live with today. 

What does the program offer?

Participants will engage in group discussions, lectures, seminars, and workshops offered by visiting faculty and guests. Through peer interaction, collaboration, art production, consultations and studio visits, participants will gain new insights and approaches that can be applied to the creative exploration, study, and development of their work. As well, the program will forge lasting networks among researchers and artists, and become a basis for future engagement.

Who should apply?

This program is open to current PhD and post-doctoral researchers (faculty up to tenure) beginning their careers. Artist applicants must have completed formal training in visual arts and demonstrate a commitment to professional practice. 

Application deadline: December 21, 2016
