Artists in Residence

The Artists in Residence program is at the heart of creativity at Medalta. Artists from all over the world come to Medalta for lengths of time from one day to one year to make in a community that validates risk and nurtures creativity. This creativity is transferred to the community through both our Exhibition and Education programs.

The resident artists also teach in our Education program which includes curricular and co-curricular programming, as well as summer camps. The resident artists occupy a vital role in delivering programming in our lifelong learning program. As an organization, The Friends of Medalta Society has been a leader in developing creative pathways in museology, social enterprise, and community engagement.

We extend our appreciation to the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Government of Canada for their generous grant that helps fund this program.


In addition to our Artist in Residence program, we offer workshops throughout the year. These workshops are led by artists with expertise in various ceramic techniques and are suitable for the intermediate and accomplished artists alike. They’re a great way to be inspired and stay connected with fellow clay enthusiasts from around the world while experiencing the Medalta community.
