Here at TAP, residency is not just about access to studio space - it is much more. Residency is about community, growth, and strengthening our engagement with our audience. Our artists participate in annual exhibits, programs and studio visits. They mentor or contribute their skills to help strengthen TAP's mission.
Studios are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Artists studios have 24/7 access, good light, heat and air conditioning, access to wash-up sinks and washrooms. Studio rates vary and residencies are renewed annually based on individual needs, growth and contribution to our arts community. Artists at all stages of their career can apply.
TAP is a creative community and our artists are an extension of who we are and what we do. They are passionate about the arts community and what they can contribute to enhance artistic experiences. Residencies at TAP look beyond the physical studio space – they are an opportunity to engage, participate, mentor and collaborate.
