The Artishow Artist-in-Residence program is an extremely popular and exciting venture for the VAC which includes partnerships with high traffic hotels. Selected artists are provided a placement for one month period at one of our partner hotels in the Greater Victoria Region.

Artists will be provided both a gallery and working space for the duration of their residency with the expectation that they will be on site on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00AM – 5:00PM with all other hours to be determined by the artist. Artists are welcome to sell their work and goods as well as use the hotel’s Debit and Credit Card system. In addition, certain hotels provides benefits for participating artists including promotion, staff meals, storage, etc. The VAC will do extensive promotion for this program. Cost for participation in the program is $100 per month with 20% commission collected by the Council on all sales. Members interested in this opportunity are encouraged to apply now!
