APPLY NOW for the Coastal Jazz 2019 Indigenous Artist-in-Residence program!

Applications due November 1, 2018.

The Indigenous Artist Residency celebrates innovative aboriginal artists and provides opportunities for collaboration, performance, and skills development supported by the Coastal Jazz and Blues Society.

This is a paid residency for residents of B.C. Application is FREE.

This is your opportunity to develop new and existing work and present it in workshops and performances leading up to, and part of, the 2019 TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival – taking place on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil Waututh.

“I was able to have dedicated time for research and creation of new pieces, as well as the monetary support to purchase instruments and gear for new works. This residency helped to facilitate work with three other Indigenous artist with whom I have been wanting to collaborate for a few years, but have lacked the financial capacity to do so.”
