Residencies for Creative and Cultural Explorations
The Caetani Cultural Centre ‘Artist-in-Residence Program’ (C3 AiR) provides studio space and short to long-term accommodation for regional, national and international artists, writers, curators, cultural researchers, musicians and performers.
The objective of our program is to provide a facility that allows artists to experiment, develop new ideas and interact with fellow artists and the community through talks, workshops and exhibitions. The programs are intended to promote professional development for the artist while giving the local community access to a diverse range of arts practices, theories and experiences.
Our AIR mandate is to collaborate with community groups in the North Okanagan to create new ideas and processes through art and bring greater awareness to shared social and environmental issues. The Caetani Cultural Centre partners with the Allan Brooks Nature Centre for the Fresh! AiR art & environment program, the Vernon Community Arts Cnetre for the CeramAIR ceramics program, and Kalamalka Press/Okanagan College for the KP@C3 Writer in Residence program. We have also partnered with the Vernon Museum for specific heritage residencies.
We encourage artists to approach creativity, exploration and research on habitat conservation in different ways and present the community with new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting art and the environment around us. We are working to add additional AIR program opportunities in collaboration with other existing cultural organizations in the community for the future.
