The Edmonton Arts Council is inviting artists in a variety of disciplines and mediums, residing in Edmonton, to submit an expression of interest to become one of the first artists at the Yorath House Artist Studio. This project is a partnership between the Edmonton Arts Council, the City of Edmonton, and the City Arts Centre.

The selected artists will have access to the studio for an anticipated series of paid eight-week placements (terms negotiable/flexible). Over the course of this pilot project, the Edmonton Arts Council and City of Edmonton will endeavour to place up to 10 Artists in the Yorath House Studio over a duration of up to 18 months.

Yorath Houseislocated at 13110 Buena Vista Road. The Studio is in a multi-use setting and will not support noisy, large-scale, or environmentally hazardous work. The Studio is a secure, accessible space, with natural light, and running water. The artists will be encouraged to make use of the park and public spaces surrounding Yorath House as well as the Studio.
