CUCCR is excited to announce the 2023 Creative Reuse Artist Residency! This year, applications are open to Concordia undergraduate students from all faculties.
The Creative Reuse Artist Residency is an opportunity for makers to focus on and highlight the dynamic potential for reuse and repurposing of materials. Participants are encouraged to consider the full-life cycle of their creations and themes including circular economies and social and environmental sustainability.
Between January and March, six artists will have access to studio space at 4th Space where they will be invited to share their process with the public. They will also have full access to CUCCR’s materials to help in creating works that explore creative reuse/repurposing and care in material practices.
The residency will culminate in mid-March with participatory public engagements and conversations around sustainability and reuse.
Applicants must be undergraduate students of any faculty at Concordia.
They must be prepared to actively create and use 4th Space as studio space.
They must dedicate some time in January, February and March to engage the public in their process.
Finally, they must commit to hosting at least one event that suits their practice.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the application process.
Concordia University’s Center for Creative Reuse (CUCCR) is dedicated to diverting usable materials from inside Concordia’s waste-stream and offering them to the general community free of cost. This waste diversion project has an impact, not only by making materials available for free to everyone but also by contributing to a culture-shift around sustainability and reuse across campus and beyond.
