Artist in Residence
Overview of Artist in Residency at St Andrew’s Wesley United Church:

Art has often been the window to our souls. Art in all forms provides a potent language for us as human beings to explore awe, wonder, loss, love, suffering and mystery. At St Andrew’s Wesley, we feel a deep sense of gratitude to artists. Artists feed our souls and imaginations, name inequities and challenge political systems, inspire and delight, and teach us to move beyond our own experiences, beliefs and ideas. In our own way as a church, we generate and participate in art with our music, architecture, weavings, stained glass, writing, sermons, and host artistic events that create and widen the sacred container of our lives. We are now launching an artist in residence program for a visual artist at our church because we want to more actively support the arts in our community and to co-create and engage both our congregation and the wider city in a dialogue around spirituality and the arts.

Goals and purpose:

- To open people of all ages and stages to the interactions between art and spirituality, and to provide an opportunity for community engagement with the arts
- To provide a supportive space for an artist to continue to explore and create while receiving financial support to enable that work
- To enrich Vancouver’s downtown core with more art and art that is accessible regardless of financial status
- To further an ongoing dialogue between spirituality and the arts
