Today we are having a different kind of discussion at Word on the Hills: we hear about two Artists’ Residencies one in the Haliburton Highlands and one in Prince Edward County. What is a residency and what does it offer the artists and writers who are so lucky as to be granted one? Ruth E Walker is the co-chair of the Management Committee of the Hall’s Island Artist Residency in Haliburton County. Dr. Jean Baird is an administrator for the Al Purdy A Frame Residency and sophie anne edwards, an interdisciplinary artist, is the current resident at the Al Purdy A Frame House. Sophie was long listed this week for the CBC poetry prize. They will tell about the residencies from their own experience.
One thought on “Artists’ Residencies with Ruth Walker, Jean Baird and sophie anne edwards”
An unusual and very welcome and informative discussion. Thanks all!
