The Deindustrialization and the Politics of Our Time Artists in Residence (DePOT AIR) program supports creative engagements with the historical roots and lived experience of deindustrialization. It invites grassroots artists from working-class, racialized and marginalized communities in deindustrialized areas to join our multi-year, interdisciplinary and transnational partnership.

We are now welcoming proposals that range across the performing, creative and visual arts, are rooted in deindustrialized areas in Italy, France, Germany, the UK, the US or Canada and that speak to the impact and legacy, of mine, mill and factory closures.

  • Two one-year fellowships (September 2022 – August 2023) are available
  • Fellowship value: 8,000$ CAD
  • Application deadline: June 15, 2022
