The nine unique studios are each designed by a distinguished Canadian architect and provide a perfect setting for individuals and collectives from a wide variety of artistic genres to create new work. Leighton artists contribute significantly to culture and the arts in Alberta, throughout Canada, and around the world.
Although all studios are equipped with kitchenettes, artists do not live in their studios; on-site accommodation and meal plans are provided separately.
Artists with a professional standing in their field and emerging artists of promising talent are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted from a variety of disciplines: writers, composers, singer-songwriters, visual artists, screenwriters, playwrights, literary translators, curators, art theorists, and professionals working in theatre, dance, and film at the conceptualization or research stage of a project.
Applications are being accepted for the following time periods in 2018: May 1 – June 30, 2018 and August 1 – December 31, 2018 (no availability in July 2018).
Residences must be at least one week in length to a maximum of four weeks.
