Deep Bay Residency program

The Deep Bay Cabin at Riding Mountain National Park was renovated by Parks Canada in 2006 to become the home of the Manitoba Arts Council’s Deep Bay Artists’ Residency program. Since 2006, over 80 artists have experimented and created new art in the beautiful natural setting of the park. Artists also have the opportunity to interact and share their work with other artists, residents, and visitors in the Riding Mountain area.

The artists-in-residence have included musicians, poets, song writers, choreographers, filmmakers, arts administrators, writers, photographers, playwrights, visual artists, documentary makers, dancers, theatre artists, and composers.

Application deadline: October 15
