Artscape is a not-for-profit organization that
makes space for creativity and transforms communities.
Artscape Gibraltar Point offers affordable short-term studio and accommodations rentals for artists and creative types who want to focus on their work in a distraction-free environment. It is also ideal for artists who do not have full-time studios and require temporary workspace.
Some artists come to conduct research, others to meet an impending deadline, and still others to take advantage of an environment that is highly conducive to creativity. We have welcomed artists from across Canada and the US, and from as far away as Singapore and Australia.
We offer two types of residencies:
1. Self-directed residencies
2. Programmed (or thematic) residencies
Self-directed residencies are for individual artists seeking time and space to independently pursue their creative ventures. Programmed residencies are term stays organized around a particular theme or idea. They are often collaborative, are directed by a facilitator, and often (but not always) involve a final project or event.
