The Port Moody Arts Centre’s Ceramic Artist in Residence (CAIR) program is an important part of our commitment to artistic and cultural development. The annual residency supports the work of an emerging ceramic artist, providing opportunities for artistic development within an innovative and supportive ceramics community. The resident receives a secure ceramic studio space for one year, gallery space for a solo exhibition, and mentorship. In return, they contribute to the PoMoArts community by assisting in the operation of our Open Clay Studio, and engaging with the public.
The residency runs from September 1, 2022 – August 31, 2023 and it is open to all ceramic artists over 19 years of age. This residency is an excellent opportunity for artistic development within an innovative and supportive ceramic community. The residency will require an emphasis on making, learning and sharing the process of creating with clay. The clay studios at PoMoArts are busy, supportive and house a true sense of community.
