Artist in Residence Program Launches

Calling all artists! The Artist in Residence Program Launches at The Residence Inn by Marriot

Accepting applications until September 30th, the Residence Inn by Marriott Calgary Downtown/Beltline District has officially launched their on-site artists in residence program!

Set to coincide with Alberta’s Month of the Artist, the Artist Inn Residence Inn (AIRI) program will invite two artists, one visual and one performance artist, to live full-time in the hotel’s suites while having a dedicated space to work on and create their art for up to 6 months. These artists will be selected by October 15th, 2021. 

The chosen visual artist will receive a dedicated gallery and workspace, while the performing artist will receive rehearsal and performance space access. The program is intended to enhance the hotel experience for those who find themselves within the space and encourage the artists to create performances, workshops, or artwork for display. 

The vibrancy of the arts and culture scene in our thriving city is a vital ingredient to what makes the Beltline BLOX a fantastic place to stay, and bringing the AIRI here was a natural choice. The Residence Inn by Marriott Calgary Downtown/Beltline is proud to support and nurture the local arts community – and programs like this will be sure to inspire.

If you are interested in applying, please send an application directly to Residence Inn Calgary. Submissions are open to Canadian residents, and the application process will seek to uncover the artist’s biography, project overview and a description of planned activities during the residency.
