Year Four of the Toronto Animated Image Society’s Artist in Residence program promises funding and resources for one Canadian artist and one international artist in support of the production of new animated work, with a deadline to apply by September 29, 2017.
This program supports the production of new animated work by artists through a combination of funding and in-kind resources. After the success of the first three years of TAIS’ artists in residence, anticipation is high for this call for proposals for Year Four of the Research and Production in Animation Residency Program.
The fourth year of the program is seeking one Canadian artist and one International artist to both engage in self-directed work, towards the completion of a new independent animated film or video. This residency comes with a combination of monetary funding and in-kind use of studio space, equipment and resources at TAIS Studios, located at 1411 Dufferin Street, in downtown Toronto.
Submissions for the 2018 Residency are open until September 29, 2017.

The International Artist Residency is one-month long, and will take place over consecutive weeks between April 2018 and October 2018.
