The Edmonton Arts Council is inviting artists in a variety of disciplines and media, residing in Edmonton, to submit an expression of interest to become artists at the Yorath House Artist Studio.

This project is a partnership between the Edmonton Arts Council, the City of Edmonton, and the City Arts Centre.

The selected artist duos will have access to the studio for an anticipated series of paid 8-12-week placements (terms negotiable/flexible). Over the course of this pilot project, the Edmonton Arts Council and City of Edmonton will endeavor to place up to 6 pairs of Artists in the Yorath House Studio over a duration of up to 12 months, commencing in the autumn of 2021.

The artists must commit to active use of the Studio on a full-time or equivalent basis and will be expected to engage in some connected (direct or remote) public work in partnership with the City Arts Centre. The Artist will also be expected to respond to opportunities to involve City staff and other community members.

Creative studio artists in any number of disciplines will be considered, including but not limited to visual arts and fine craft, writing, composing, and filmmaking. Pairs working in different disciplines or media from one another are especially encouraged to apply. Artists should be comfortable with and prepared to become a cohort as evolving Covid-19 restrictions dictate.

The Yorath House Studio placement comes at no direct cost to the Artists. The Edmonton Arts Council has estimated $6,000 per-artist remuneration based on an 8-week placement.Other durations are negotiable, with proportional remuneration. The final dates, terms, and amounts are flexible and subject to the selection process and other scheduling factors.

Please respond with the noted cover letter, résumé/CV, and appropriate support material by, August 2nd, 2021 to info@edmontonarts.ca with the subject line: Yorath House. Responses may also be sent to the Edmonton Arts Council offices in hard copy.
