The In Community Residency: Access Edition invites a cohort of mad, neurodivergent, sick, disabled and/or chronically ill queer artists for a 3-month residency at SNAP, running from April 2023 until December 2023. It is made possible by the Edmonton Arts Council’s Connections and Exchanges Organizational Initiatives Grant.
The In Community Residency: Access Edition invites a cohort of mad, neurodivergent, sick, disabled and/or chronically ill queer artists to expand their community-based research practices and visual artistic skills through a 3-month residency at SNAP.
This initiative asks each participant to reflect on what ‘access as materiality’ means to their individual artistic and community-based research practices. Artists are encouraged to reflect on how to build meaningful, sustainable relationships with their bodyminds, their research practices, and their community.
The goal of the In Community Residency: Access Edition is to support the practice of local artists and provide new opportunities to a community profoundly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative also encourages the SNAP community to think through access as a collaborative and connective tool in the printshop, neighbouring communities, and online worlds we inhabit and create in.
The In Community Artist Residency is made possible by the Edmonton Arts Council’s Connections and Exchanges Organizational Initiatives Grant.
