The City invites emerging artists in all disciplines (including writers, composers, visual artists, musicians, theatre artist, video, multi-disciplinary, social practice, and performance artists) to submit an application for a residency at the historic Bunkhouse at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo (SFFPZ).

Artists in Place: The Bunkhouse Project is a residency program to revitalize the historic Bunkhouse at the SFFPZ through the development and implementation of an artist studio program.

Project goals include:

  • to provide opportunities for artistic expression in a civic facility
  • to inspire artists through the nature, animals, and people at the SFFPZ
  • to connect the SFFPZ and the greater world

The Bunkhouse studios will be available to two artists or artist teams who wish to create work inspired by the SFFPZ. Artist teams must be in the same bubble.

The Project residency will take place from May 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021.

Deadline for applications is 4:30 p.m. on Monday, March 1, 2021.
