Cedar Ridge Creative Centre
Artist in Residence Program
July 1 – August 31, 2014

Friday, April 25, 2014 by 4:00 p.m.

Produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with community partners, the inaugural Cultural Hotspot program features a region of Scarborough bordered by Lawrence Avenue, Highland Creek Village, Victoria Park Avenue and the lake. The Cultural Hotspot builds creative capacity through youth engagement, workshops and legacy projects and connects this vibrant inner suburban area with all of Toronto.

Cedar Ridge Creative Centre is a vibrant arts and cultural hub housed in a 1912 mansion and a featured Hotspot location. As part of the Hotspot initiative, Cedar Ridge will have an Artist in Residency Program during the summer months culminating in a September exhibit of the resident's work in the Cedar Ridge Gallery.


The Gardener's Cottage, 2014 Residency Site

The competition is open to emerging and mid-career artists creating two-dimensional paintings or drawings. Applicants must be residents of the City of Toronto and must not be enrolled in any arts degree or diploma program. Our priority is to reflect the diversity of the community we serve. Women, young adults 18-30, people with disabilities, Aboriginal/First Nations people, and members of racial minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

The artist will receive:

  • The use of a Gardener's Cottage studio during centre hours
  • Exhibition space at the Cedar Ridge Gallery for the month of September (September 6 – October 7) for work already completed (subject to review) in addition to the work being produced onsite for this award
  • Promotion of final exhibition through established City of Toronto public relations channels
  • $500 in art supplies
  • Cedar Ridge's support should the recipient choose to pursue outside grants for the term of their residency
