Call for Artists: Boarding House Arts Incubator 2015-2016 Call for Submissions (due Oct 31)
Boarding House Arts Incubator is an eighteen-month studio residency and mentoring program designed to help Guelph area artists advance their professional careers. Artists are selected through a competitive process in response to an open call for participants. The program supports a breadth of artistic practices ranging from media-based work to painting to socially engaged art.
The Arts Incubator aims to assist emerging and mid-career artists to advance to the next level of professional achievement. A particular focus is placed on understanding the business dynamics of the art world and upon the requirements of sustaining a career as a professional artist.
At the start of the program, an individual mentoring and goal-based development plan is established with each artist. The plan is developed jointly between the artist and members of the Mentoring Committee. The focus of the plan is both on the artist’s creative development and on building their professional capacity as a practicing artist during and after the program.
Participants in the program may re-apply for a second term through the open call for participants.
