National Residency Award, Prince Edward County, ON


So many artists are trying to fit their practice into the hours outside of their day job. Many are setting up “studios” on their living room floors or dining room tables. At Spark Box we offer artists time and space to focus on their work in an encouraging and supportive environment.

Imagine one full month to get a new project off the ground. One full month to think only about creating your work. One full month without distractions.

This is what Spark Box is offering to artists living and working in Canada: one full month at the Spark Box Studio Residency where you will be given a studio space and living space for FREE.

This residency opportunity is a unique way for established and emerging artists to cultivate new ideas, access a rich library of arts resources, and focus on their career.

Otranto Arts and Writing Residency, is a two week summer program for artists and writers to pursue independent work in a community of peers sharing a uniquely rich historical setting. The workshop offers a haven for creative rejuvenation that aims to open possibilities and paths into the work of the participants. From June 1 to June 30, a select group of up to 15 artists and writers engage in an intensive cultural and creative experience. A ten day stay can be arranged if necessary. Residents live in apartments in the ancient walled city by the sea. They work in the visual arts studio in the Castle of Otranto. Field trips include the neighboring towns of Lecce and Galatina as well as ancient neolithic sites. The place, the light, the unexpected connections of life and materials, architecture, music and the people, have proved to be inspirational in the delicate process leading to change in the relationship between matter and thought. The residency is an opportunity for artists to concentrate and interact while leaving space to dream.
