Frequently Asked Questions:
What kinds of artists can apply?
- This residency program is open to all kinds of creative folk. Please note we’re a small process-based residency – we can’t offer significant access to specialized tools or equipment.
How do you assess the applicants?
- The Artist-in-Residence Coordinator, someone with professional experience in the visual, literary and performing arts, assembles an assessment jury, made up of a couple local professional artists.
- The assessment of a wide range of artistic disciplines is based on how well the artist articulates their reasons for wanting to attend this particular residency, as well as how well they articulate their artistic body of work and intentions for their creative practice while here.
What kind of weather does Vernon have in November?
- It’ll be cool in November, heading into winter. Possibly it’ll snow at some point during your stay, but Vernon winters are quite mild, ranging from -5 Celsius to +10 Celsius.
Can I bring my partner/child/friend for the residency?
- Unfortunately, the Fogliano Room is a smaller room with a twin bed, suitable only for one person.
Will I need a vehicle?
- No. As long as you’re comfortable with a 20 minute walk, you’re within walking distance of the public library, grocery stores, restaurants, coffeeshops, recreation centre, performing arts centre, yoga studios and more.
