Sponsored Artist Membership Program

The Power Plant's Sponsored Artist Membership Program, generously supported by an anonymous donor, gives contemporary artists the opportunity to partake in the special benefits a one-year Membership. The Power Plant aims to provide artists with greater access to the expanded and diverse public programs that are presented in conjunction with our many exhibitions. As the first of its kind, the program benefits the Canadian arts community by providing networking opportunities where artists can enhance knowledge of a variety of happenings within a contemporary, Canadian and international visual arts context.

Artists are nominated by a committee of long-standing Members of The Power Plant, artists and cultural producers in the community. Each new cohort of Sponsored Artist Members are celebrated at a WELCOME Party in May of each year, where they are welcomed into The Power Plant family with good food and drinks with The Power Plant staff. The program began with an inaugural cohort of 100 artists in 2014, visit the individual pages to learn more about each year’s cohort of Sponsored Artist Members.
