The artist residency program at Artscape Gibraltar Point, has invited artists from all over North America and the world to explore their creative practice in a community setting on on Mnisiing (Toronto Islands) in the former Toronto Island Public and Natural Science School. The residency offers participants, not only the opportunity to work without distraction on various projects but to further build and develop their personal and professional networks. Residents create artworks through media of their choice, such as photography, writing, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance art, new media etc.
Artscape Gibraltar Point opened in 1999 on Toronto Island in Canada. Over the years, this four-season arts and cultural facility, has hosted thousands of locally, regionally and internationally recognized artists. More than 300 artists a year from across the globe experiment and create art through self-directed and thematic residencies hosted in our overnight accommodations. In addition to hosting a maximum of twenty visiting artists at any given time, fifteen long-term artist work studios provide space for a range of painters, sculptors, musicians, filmmakers and a recording studio – all of whom contribute to the unique and collaborative atmosphere at Artscape Gibraltar Point.
Artscape is a not-for-profit urban development organization that makes space for creativity and transforms communities.
