Residency for Artists on Hiatus (RFAOH)

Scholarship / Financial aid: stipends of $30 CAD per month

Date: 6 months - 1 year

Deadline: September 15, 2014 11:59PM EDT

Open to: artists who are currently NOT making or presenting art

Announcement follows


Residency for Artists on Hiatus (RFAOH) accepts applications from artists who are currently NOT making or presenting art. The applicant should have had a professional career with an exhibition record, training in visual arts or equivalent experience, and the recognition of their peers. Shoud you have an appointed presentation or a project to start in the future and are simply waiting for it, RFAOH does not consider this as a hiatus.


The residency period should be a minimum of 6 months to a maximum of one year. Selected artists are expected to document their on-hiatus activities (or non-activities) and to provide periodic updates during their residency on a dedicated page of the RFAOH website. They are also asked to submit a written report on their experience at the conclusion of their residency. This documentation material will later be published as part of the RFAOH annual report. Should an occasion for resuming one's artistic practice unexpectedly occur, the resident artist may withdraw from the residency; in such a case the inclusion in the publication will be subject to consideration. Further, any on-hiatus endeavours conducted during this residency should not be considered an art project; therefore we ask that its documentation not be used in any future "art" presentations or exhibitions. Please keep in mind that RFAOH is an opportunity for the residents to focus on their "non-art" project or endeavors, rather than to conceive ideas for future art projects.

Selection and Stipend

Resident artists will be selected based on their on-hiatus proposal. Preference will be given to proposals which demonstrate a rigorous interest in their "non-art" endeavour to be conducted during their residency. Successful applicants will be awarded stipends of $30 CAD per month in exchange with their participation. This amount is subject to change depending on funding. Successful applicants will be notified approximately 2 months after the application deadline.
