Co-presented by MAWA and Creative Manitoba
Artist residencies offer the opportunity for exchange, focussed work and relationship building with international peers in an informal manner that is unique. This workshop provides information on different residency models. How do you figure out if a particular residency is right for you? What questions should you ask a residency centre? How should you structure your time while you are there? Han has participated in short-term and long-term residencies, located amidst nature and the big city. She will offer tips on applying for residencies and securing arts council funding, and share her experience on what to expect before, during and after the programs.
