Artists’ Residencies with Ruth Walker, Jean Baird and sophie anne edwards

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.
