Graphic Novels and Visual Narratives Residency

Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Canada-wide
Deadline: October 24, 2022 - January 25, 2023


January 25, 2023

Banff Centre’s Graphic Novels and Visual Narratives residency considers how creatives use this unique media as a place for personal narrative, memoir, and exploration.

In this self-directed residency, you will have the space to work away from the constraints of everyday life, delve deep into your creative project, and take advantage of the artistic community of your peers. You will have opportunities for consultations with faculty and guests, Matt Madden, Bishakh Som, and Annie Koyama; who specialize in comics, illustration, publishing, and writing; and the option to engage in readings and group sessions, that allow creators to explore techniques, aspects, and devices that you may find useful in your practice.

Who should apply?
Experienced writers, graphic novelists/cartoonists, writer/illustrators, or writer and illustrator pairings looking to explore the future of visual and literary techniques and focus on works in progress. We welcome writers from all ages, backgrounds, gender identities, and expressions.

*Financial Aid available.

Program Dates: April 24 - May 05, 2023
