Richmond seeks artists for community art program

The deadline to apply for the 2023 Engaging Artists in Community Program is Sept. 26, 2022.
Vancouver artist Edward Fu-Chen Juan held inkmaking and papermaking workshops as a part of his 2022 residency.

The city of Richmond is looking for socially-oriented and civic-minded artists for next year's Engaging Artists in Community Program.

The residency encourages artists collaborate with community partners and use art as a catalyst to engage participants, providing them "with a greater sense of self, identity, community and place through learning and experience of artmaking experiences."

Work for the program must also "be accessible and appeal to a diverse and local audience."

Artists and their community partners for the 2022 program are:

  • Edward Fu-Chen with Urban Bounty
  • Sebnem Ozpeta with Walk Richmond and Richmond Fitness and Wellness Association
  • Mickey L.D. Morgan with residents of Turning Point Recovery Society's Richmond Emergency Response Centre.

The budget for the 2023 program is $11,000 to $13,000 and the three partners are Sharing Farm/ Terra Nova Nature School, Ferris Elementary School and East Richmond Community Association.

All projects will comply with current Provincial Health Orders for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Artists residing in B.C. are eligible and the deadline to apply is Sept. 26, 2022. Details and submission requirements are available in the artist call.
