ArtStarts Ignites is a dynamic residency program that offers early career artists time, space, and resources to develop their artistic portfolio in an educational context.
The residency program offers a series of mentorship opportunities to support the artists’ professional development, including sessions on accessibility, workshop facilitation, grant writing, and more. Every year, the residency program also centres around a different focus area, offering artists from all disciplines opportunities to increase their capacity as artists in a supportive learning environment.If you are interested in learning more about this program, please contact our Program Manager, Alyssa Martens, at [email protected].
