About Our Organization
Annandale Artist Residency is the passion project of the Shevlen Family. Located on the Atlantic Ocean, in Annandale, Prince Edward Island, Annandale Artist Residency (AAR) is housed in a restored historic home, facilitating up to three visiting artists at a time. Since 2020, we’ve been working with esteemed artists, curators, and administrators to identify gaps in opportunities and representation in the Canadian art community — and, to shape the residency to reflect current needs and trends. With this in mind, Annandale Artist Residency offers mid-career artists the time, resources, and space necessary to cultivate new art and ideas through month-long, self-directed residency stays, free of entrance fees. Annandale Arts Residency imagines a thriving arts community, bolstered by innovative, inclusive residency centres. AAR honours ground-breaking artistic practices with this fully-funded residency opportunity. By pairing large ideas and ambitious projects with the regional and vibrant PEI locale, we aim to create rare and valuable opportunities for production and collaboration.
