The program supports Ontario-based professional artists to pursue artistic development opportunities outside the province.
The program prioritizes residencies that include a host (organization, group or individual) who has committed to facilitating the applicant’s engagement with the local arts community.
Special funds are allocated for residencies taking place in the province of Quebec through an arrangement between OAC and the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec (CALQ).
