Artist-in-Residence (A-i-R) Programme

Founded in 1974 The Craft Studio is a unique Canadian institution that assists recent graduates and emerging craftspeople to establish professional careers; and exposes the public to the world of contemporary craft through residencies, exhibitions, and events. Harbourfront Centre’s Craft Department is the only post-graduate national training facility for craftspeople, recognized by Canadian Heritage.

Residencies are designed to assist and promote recent graduates and emerging craftspeople by providing time, facilities, professional development programmes and resources to create and develop work. Talent and commitment are encouraged in a community that advocates contemporary craft expression. The Craft Studio residency programme acts as a stepping stone between school and a professional career. It contributes to public education by providing a venue where the public can observe craftspeople at work.

We encourage serious craftspeople, across Canada and internationally to consider a residency in The Craft Studio. We invite submissions and maintain an up-to-date file of applicants interested in current and future openings. If you live outside the area and are planning a visit to Toronto, interviews can be arranged with sufficient notice. Out-of-town applicants must provide for their own accommodation and travel costs for the interview.

Residencies include full use of equipped studios, lectures & workshops by national and international renowned craftspeople and artists, conferences, exhibitions and teaching opportunities. All materials and supplies must be provided by the residents. Residency does not include housing. If you are applying from outside Canada, you must make your own arrangements for a visa to live in this country.
