Fogo Island Arts and The Hnatyshyn Foundation are seeking applications from young Canadian curators for a six-week residency in 2019.

During the residency period, participants have opportunities to work and interact with Fogo Island Arts staff, Canadian and international artists-in-residence, and members of the community. Candidates are selected based on their body of work and their ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

*The residency period is July 2 to August 13 2019, but other dates may be possible, subject to availability.

The program guidelines and application portal are available online at The Hnatyshyn Foundation.
