residency opportunity – Workshop (Calgary)

The Workshop is a community based creative initiative
located in Altador. It is a small open space that allows for multipurpose
programming. Ranging from children’s art classes to cultural focused adult
workshops the space attempts to be responsive to the community’s needs.
Although the focus is primary local the Workshop strives to be relevant within
the larger contemporary arts and crafts community.  In addition to educational programming the Workshop
has created a ceramic residency program that will allow for an artist to have
studio and facility access. The Workshop is also scheduling regular short term exhibitions.
It will exhibit progressive cultural based material and ideas. Ultimately, the
Workshop is a creative community center that is designed to both reflect and
inform its social context.
