Online Artist in Residence Program

The Arts Council of New Westminster (ACNW) Online Artist-In-Residence program aims to reflect both the cultural and artistic diversity of contemporary art and to serve as an educational forum for the citizens of New Westminster and surrounding communities. The program features a variety of disciplines by a wide range of artists from New Westminster. Selected artists range from established to emerging artists living and/or working in New Westminster.

The ACNW provides local New Westminster artists with the opportunity to access our online assets (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) to showcase their creative work with the community through an Online Artist in Residence Program. The residency program is a virtual space for artists to explore and create art, engage with the community and have time and space for experimenting on something new. This residency is a self-directed presentation of the artist’s artistic practice and output. The program is not project-driven; therefore, artists have the freedom to occupy this space in a way that fits their creative expression.
