INAUGURAL ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM AT THE BENTWAY: SOUND & THE CITY
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS RELEASED: January 7, 2019
DEADLINE: Friday, February 15, 2019
INFORMATION SESSION: January 27, 2019, 2-4pm
RESIDENCY DURATION: April – August 2019
The Bentway Conservancy is thrilled to announce our inaugural Artist Residency program. The inaugural artist residency will focus on the acoustic environment of The Bentway. The hum of the Gardiner above, the rush of passing trains to the north, the occasional cannon blasts from the Fort York grounds and the general buzz from the surrounding city make The Bentway site rich acoustic territory. The selected artist or collective will be asked to explore The Bentway as an instrument, and to experiment with the varied sonic environments along its length.
The residency aims to expand the way we think about the sounds that shape our creative experience in the city, the parameters defining sound art and the types of projects contributing to the discipline.
The Bentway’s 2019 Artist Residency is presented by RBC.
