Artist Residency

Currently located on a floating platform at Imperial Landing in the City of Richmond’s historic Steveston Village, the residency gives the artist a unique perspective on the city from the water. 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.
