Haven centre seeks emerging young artists for residency

Young or emerging artists seeking a temporary home to celebrate and share their work have an opportunity to become an artist in residence at The Haven.

The centre is celebrating 30 years of operation in 2013 and is commemorating the milestone by asking artists 30 years and younger to apply to the residency program.

“We are happy to celebrate our 30 years and it is our intention to be here for another 30 years and more into the future,” said Rachel Davey, executive director of Haven. “For this reason, it made perfect sense to us to offer the residency to young and emerging artists in this special year.”

In September, The Haven, in partnership with the Gabriola Arts Council, hosted two artists, visual artist Sande Waters and poet Shirley Serviss.

The program was created to acknowledge the important role creativity plays in people’s health and well-being. The program is open to artists of all disciplines. The residency includes free accommodation for one or two people between Sept. 15 and Oct. 5, a work space, an opportunity to work and learn from Gabriolan artists and more.

The deadline to apply is March 28. For more information please go to www.haven.ca.
