Artist Residency

The Blue Cabin Floating Artist Residency is a mobile artist residency located in Vancouver British Columbia on Canada’s Pacific Coast. Currently located on a floating platform in False Creek in downtown Vancouver, the residency gives the artist a unique perspective on the city from the water. The deckhouse is an off the grid home with modern appliances and comforts and a 360-degree view of the small harbour, while the historic cabin acts as a studio for the artist’s activities. Located on the foreshore in close proximity to shopping and amenities, the Blue Cabin provides a home base in this waterfront city. The six to eight week time frame allows the artist time for solo production as well as opportunities for engagement within the community.

The Blue Cabin artist residencies are a mix of curated and invitational residencies alongside annual open calls.
