Residency programs in Canada

A residence abroad gives artists the opportunity to gather valuable experience and inspiration for the further development of their work. A new environment and encounters with artists from other cultural backgrounds offer ideal conditions for expanding one's own creativity, inspiring the further development of artistic processes and helping to build an international network at the beginning of a worldwide career.
