Would you like to spend 2-4 weeks in residence in Miami, in the context of a vibrant visual arts centre? MAWA is currently accepting applications for the ArtCenter/South Florida residency exchange program. Woman-identified MAWA members at all stages of their careers are encouraged to apply. Equal consideration will be given to emerging and established artists.

Accommodation is a fully furnished one-bedroom apartment with kitchen (not wheelchair accessible). Linens and basic cooking utensils are provided. The successful applicant will also be provided with rough studio space, as well as a $300 US honourarium for a talk or public presentation of some kind (screening, talk, performance, showcase of work-in-progress, etc.). Artists are responsible for their own travel, living and materials expenses. Artists are encouraged to use this space and time for research, reflection, networking and/or production.

Email applications to programs@mawa.ca and put “South Florida” in the subject heading. Applications must be received by Friday, October 13 at 4 pm.

Please email a single PDF document containing:

  • a cover letter saying why you would like time at the ArtCenter/South Florida residency (goals, rationale)
  • your first and second choice of preferred dates and duration of residency   
  • an artist’s C.V.
  • up to two videos as weblinks (total viewing time 5 minutes)
  • up to 15 images along with image information (title, media, dimensions, date)

The MAWA partnership with ArtCenter/South Florida is intended to increase dialogue between our geographical community—Winnipeg—and the art world beyond, to create networking opportunities for women artists, and to provide an oasis in which women artists can do whatever they need to do in order to move their practices forward.
