Branscombe House Artist Residency
CALL FOR ARTISTS | REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

The City of Richmond Department of Arts, Culture and Heritage invites professional, community-engaged artists in all disciplines (including writers, composers, visual artists, musicians, theatre artists, video, multi-disciplinary, social practice and performance artists) to submit proposals for an 11-month live-in residency located on Canada’s west coast, in Richmond, B.C.

The third annual Branscombe House residency will begin in January 2018 and run until mid-December, 2018.

Branscombe House is a recently restored Edwardian style house located in the residential area of historic Steveston in Richmond. The self-contained two-bedroom artists’ suite upstairs is offered as an artist residence/studio with rent 100% subsidized in exchange for ~22 hours/month (240 hours total) of hands-on community engagement. The City will also provide in-kind marketing support, as well as facility/production support associated with public programs (including access to free use of cultural and performance spaces; basic workshop materials, print production, tech support, etc.) as negotiated and provide up to $1500 in hard cost reimbursement.
We are seeking proposals for interesting new projects and programs that promote meaningful community engagement through artistic opportunities. Artists passionate about working with diverse communities are especially encouraged to apply.
