FCG Artist Residency: Dream Session #2

June 23rd, 7:30-9 PM at Forest City Gallery
Catered & Licensed
Facilitated by Lynne Dubuc

Now underway, we are at the second stage of community meetings!

Join us on June 23rd for a continuation of the conversations from Dream Session #1. We've expanded on our plans and look forward to your feedback. At this meeting we will share a summary of the information gathered in Session #1 and the online survey. We will discuss potential frameworks for the residency, possible funding sources and budgets, as well as other pertinent information. As there is no “standard” model for residency programs, we are asking for your feedback and comments to ensure the feasibility and success of this project.

More about the project:

Dependent on availability and accessibility, the possible location of this residency is undetermined and flexible. One goal of this meeting will be to discuss prospective facilities and the potential of renting the currently unoccupied space above the gallery.

If deemed feasible, FCG will apply for additional Ontario Trillium Foundation Funding through the ‘Grow’ Grant in 2018 to make this project happen.

Thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for the generous support of this project. An agency of the Government of Ontario, the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is one of Canada’s largest granting foundations. With a budget of over $136 million, OTF awards grants to some 1,000 projects every year to build healthy and vibrant Ontario communities.
