The Blue Cabin + Branscombe House

We are so pleased to announce a partnership with The City of Richmond to provide accommodations for our residents and host artist-led public programs at the historic Branscombe House throughout 2023. Residencies and free events such as public artist talks, open studio events, and workshops will be held at the heritage home as well as at the Blue Cabin from March through October, 2023.

Berlin-based artist Michelle-Marie Letelier will arrived in March and remained in residence at the Blue Cabin through the end of April. Two more residencies will take place later in the year, including a partnership with the Australian Arts Council and Footscray Community Arts Centre (Melbourne, Australia). Stay tuned for our official announcement of upcoming residencies and related engagements at Branscombe House and the Blue cabin, which will appear here on our website and our Instagram feed.

About the Branscombe House Artist Residency

The Branscombe House Artist Residency takes place in a restored Edwardian-style house in the residential area of Steveston. Since its inaugural residency in 2016, the program has hosted seven visiting professional artists for 11 month community-engaged arts residencies. Branscombe House, built in 1908 and restored in 2014, is located at the corner of Steveston Highway and Railway Avenue in south Richmond, and is one of the earliest settler homes in the area.
