The Queer and Trans Research Lab (QTRL) of the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies (SDS) at the University of Toronto invites all qualified applicants to apply to be our artist-in-residence for the 2022-23 school year. The QTRL residency will provide financial and other material support for artists working in any medium (photography, sculpture, visual art, media arts, theatre, poetry, playwriting, fiction, etc.), whose work centres on LGBTQ2S+ lives, communities, histories, and cultures. The residency will culminate in a funded exhibition, reading, screening, or performance of the resident’s work-in-progress.
The successful applicant will join the faculty and students who make up our intellectual community and participate in activities at SDS. They will be given office space and access to the vast faculty resources, manuscript archives, and library collections available at the University of Toronto and the Bonham Centre. The successful candidate will receive a stipend of $20,000.
Previous Artists-in-Residence include Teiya Kasahara 笠原 貞野 and Michèle Pearson Clarke.
