CFAT’s Artist-In-Residence Program runs once a year, providing a media artist an opportunity to develop a new work, conduct research and connect with the CFAT community. Residencies are usually thematic, but always are based in a medium which CFAT can fully support. The successful applicant receives over $1000 of in-kind support in the form of Production and Editing memberships, access to facilities and equipment, a $1700 artist fee, a $300 speaker fee for conducting a talk or workshop for the community about their project, and access to technical assistance during the residency. Previous thematic residencies have included Video as a Physical Medium, Electronics Residency, and Local Curator in Residence. Past Artist-In-Residence include: Lisa Lipton, Krista Davis, Will Robinson, Khanhthuan Tran, Melanie Colosimo, Eryn Foster, Michael McCormack and Merle Harley.
Local residencies take place at the Centre for Art Tapes, 2238 Maitland Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
