The CAAF Residency is a program offered by the Calgary Allied Art Foundation (CAAF) – a non-profit organization that supports and encourages the development of art and culture in Calgary. The residency program was developed to offer studio space to emerging artists in 1-3 month durations.
The studio is currently being relocated to the newly opened cSPACE King Edward. The first CAAF artist in residence will move into this new studio space September 2017, more updates on this exciting transition to come.
During your residency, there may also be opportunities for exhibition and open studio hours. All artists selected for the CAAF Residency are expected to undertake this opportunity professionally, respecting the studio space and their neighbors while acting as a representative of CAAF.
Applications are accepted from current residents of Canada, however, we are unable to supply travel stipends or grant assistance for out of town artists. A fee of $700/month is paid to artists upon completion of the Residency and the deadline for applications is October 23, 2017.

Elmo’s House is located in the small seaside town of Batan, Aklan, Philippines. Elmo’s House provides an idyllic retreat for artists to stay for a minimum of two weeks up to two months. The house is right at the heart of a quiet fishing village, within walking distance to secluded beaches and lush mountains.
Elmo’s House is multi-level with six bedrooms and three washrooms. There are two open-air floors designated for studios, that have unobstructed views of the town as well as inspiring sunrise and sunsets. It is a large but simple house with all the necessities to foster a unique experience.
Each artist will have their own private room. Depending on the parameters of the project, we will do our best to help realize the artists’ goals by utilizing the resources available. General housekeeping and basic meals will be provided, but artists are required to respect the space and observe basic courtesies.
2017 will be the first year of operation and will be an exciting opportunity for participants as ideas solidify and best practices are established. Visiting artists for this first year have a chance to help shape the structure and inform the future of this project.
