This week-long program provides an opportunity for guitarists to study the work of Leo Brouwer, who is celebrating his 80th year and collaborating around the world with students interested in his body of work. Each participant will have a chance to be a part of a masterclass under Maestro Brouwer, attend public lectures, discuss career development, and perform in a concert of Brouwer’s works. Guitarists accepted into this program will be fully funded.

Deadline: July 31, 2019

What happens when artists set up shop in an architecture and design studio? HCMA is not offering a traditional residency (i.e., no accommodations are offered), but invites artists in residency to do a portion of their work in HCMA’s studios. The length of each residency varies from one to three months depending on the project, but engagements usually involve some workshopping with the HCMA team and culminate in a show in its TILT gallery or some other public space. Artists are supported with a stipend and materials budget.

Location: Vancouver, BC; Victoria, BC

MIRA Fellowship
A simple reframe can change the course of history…

MIRA is actively recruiting fellows for their next cohort, which will begin fall of 2019.

The Mira Fellowship is building a blueprint for our cultural future by reframing our most intractable issues and discovering solutions that empower individuals to action.

The Fellowship
Throughout history, monumental change has come from simple shifts in perspective. Our global society currently faces many seemingly intractable problems. The Mira Fellowship is designed to provide an opportunity for motivated people to address our most pressing issues by stepping back, finding a new perspective, and creating an action plan.

Fellows will be given one year to research, design, and produce a simple actionable plan for change. How do we reframe garbage? How do we rethink privacy? How do we rethink education? What is your question that could change the world?

The fellowship is cohort-based and remotely collaborates monthly as well as meeting in person several times a year. Each fellow receives a small research grant along with on-going coaching, support, and access to expertise.


The Women’s Studio Workshop has an artist-centered philosophy and a deep commitment to the individual’s creative process. We support this vision through providing time and space in the form of grants, residencies, and internships where artists can come to work with 24-hour access to our studios.

All applications (with exception to the Artist’s Book residencies, which must be postmarked by November 15th) must be submitted online by midnight EST of the date listed.

Visit their website HERE for due dates and more information about their artist opportunities.
