Made in Kamloops: Young Artists’ Residency Program

Thursdays, 3:30 to 5:00 pm

November 2, 2017 to June 28, 2018

Ages 17 to 21



Made in Kamloops is a new program offered by the Kamloops Art Gallery designed to create links between youth and the contemporary art world.

Through Made in Kamloops, participants will learn to work collaboratively with their peers, their educators/mentors and contemporary artists. They will learn to think critically, develop a creative world view and make original art in response to monthly topics.

Students involved in Made in Kamloops will get a behind-the-scenes look at how an art gallery operates and will work with their peers to make authentic work, design a catalogue and curate an exhibition.

Anyone interested may apply with a reference letter by October 23. Nominations from teachers/mentors are also welcome. Space is limited so apply early!
