Artists in Residence and Visiting Artists

Last Updated: July 19, 2022
.
LIFT offers a select number of international residencies each year depending on funding from the artists’ local country. The time ranges from 4 – 6 weeks for individual production residencies for artists from outside Canada. LIFT’s international residency program focuses on the production of analogue film-based works with equipment and facilities to which the artist would not have access in their local region. Artists are expected to be at an established point in their practice (although not necessarily working predominantly with film). Applicants must also consider what they would bring to the Toronto community in terms of community collaboration, teaching, artist talks and/or presentation activities—these engagements are a critical part of each residency offered by LIFT.
