[ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND & LABRADOR]
Eastern Edge Gallery is excited to present three new Calls for Submissions:
EE Studio Residencies
Land-Based Artist Residency with Marlene Creates
HOLD FAST Festival 2019
Residencies will take place in Eastern Edge Gallery's new expansion, EE Studios. Previously Harbourside Studios, and more recently Sooley Designs, this new space will allow Eastern Edge to further cultivate and encourage contemporary art practices in downtown St. John's. EE Studios will include both creation- and research- based artist residencies selected from a national call for submissions. We encourage the local arts community not only to share, but to apply for these new opportunities so we may support one another through our artistic endeavours.
Eastern Edge is proud to announce a new residency and mentorship opportunity for artists with Environmental & Land-Based practices. The artist-in-residence will receive professional development advice and guidance specific to their creative goals from renowned artist and recent winner of the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts, Marlene Creates. This residency involves three rewarding components including the opportunity to present an existing project and a workshop at HOLD FAST Contemporary Arts Festival, a mentored residency to work on a new project for up to six weeks, and the chance to participate in Memorial University of Newfoundland’s conference: “The Future of Rural Development”.
Eastern Edge is also seeking local, national, and international artists and art groups to apply for HOLD FAST Contemporary Arts Festival 2019. Now entering its 20th year, HOLD FAST provides opportunities for established works to expand into our communities through a residency program, workshops, artist talks, and culminates in a performance/installation based Art Crawl event. We hope to see proposals with engaging artistic practices that challenge or explore the ways in which art can make an impact.
We are happy to answer any questions and provide additional information regarding these opportunities. We look forward to seeing you in our new space throughout the year!
