Project Details

The City of Burlington public art program is inviting professional artists and artist teams to submit expressions of interest for an Artist-in-Residence program. Working with the city's Arts and Culture staff, the selected artist(s) will conduct a 6-month residency to research the establishment of 'cultural nodes' in Burlington.

In addition to attending planning meetings and consulting with key stakeholders, the selected artist will create temporary public art interventions to engage and interact with the community.

This is a non live-in residency however the selected artist is expected to visit Burlington frequently and must live within easy travel distance.

Project Goals

  • The integration of an artist's perspective into planning cultural nodes
  • Create opportunities for street-level cultural engagement through unique public engagement activities and temporary public art installations
  • Make recommendations on ways to link identified cultural nodes
  • Make recommendations on future permanent public art installation(s) related to cultural nodes
