Whitewater Artist in Residence Application 2023.2024

Program Overview

This program was created in a bid to support and nurture the local diversity of artistic talent in the Nelson and Kootenay Lake region. Our program is dynamic and largely based on the artists and what they are hoping to accomplish during the season.

What does the program offer?

The Whitewater Artist in Residence program offers successful participants a season pass for the winter season and exposure on our social media channels. There is the potential for further offerings dependent on the projects that will be undertaken. Whitewater will work together with the chosen participants over the winter season to showcase their work, run community engagement activities, and discover what possibilities exist when you mix epic mountains with raw creativity.

How long is the program?

The program runs for the duration of our winter season.

Who should apply?

This program is for any type of creative who has demonstrated experience or recognition in their field.

Applications for the Winter 23/24 Season will open in Fall 2023.
