X in Residence is pleased to announce that submissions are open for our 2022 artists in residence. This will be the residency’s first open call since our founding in 2021.

XiR is a residency for emerging artists and arts practitioners located in Toronto. XiR emphasizes process and experimentation over artistic output, and encourages residents to respond to the needs of their practice, whether that be research, conversation, network-building, public programming, or a space to make new work. The residency will support this growth through mentorship, facilitating studio visits, and sharing the resident’s work on social media. Through this approach, the hope is that artists will have the opportunity to connect with arts communities in Toronto, and acquire the tools they need to grow their practice.
