Artscape is a not-for-profit organization that
makes space for creativity and transforms communities.
Artscape Gibraltar Point offers affordable short-term studio and accommodations rentals for artists and creative types who want to focus on their work in a distraction-free environment. Artists enjoy clean and cozy private accommodations, bright and spacious studios, a shared kitchen and lounge, free WiFi, bike rentals, beautiful outdoor spaces and spectacular views of the lake from the Gibraltar Point Beach. It's just a short ferry ride away from Toronto's city centre.
The residency program at Artscape Gibraltar Point is ideal for artists who are conducting research, working to meet a deadline, collaborating with others or who require temporary workspace.
We offer two types of residencies: self-directed and programmed.
Self-directed residencies are perfect for artists seeking time and space to independently pursue their creative projects. Artists can apply to do a self-directed residency at any time.
Programmed Residencies allow artists to work independently with the mentorship of a visiting professional artist working in international contemporary art. Various models are explored including studio work, lectures, group discussion, collaboration and outdoor retreats, permitting residents to find common ground between practices and establish new connections. Artists can apply to take part in a thematic/programmed residency when opportunities are available (see below).
