Art in the Garden
Find your inspiration in Darts Hill Garden
The Darts Hill Garden Conservancy Trust Society (DHGCTS) is now accepting applications from local artists for its Artist in Residence Program (AiR).
The AiR is a self-directed program offering opportunities for artists to work outdoors in Darts Hill Garden Park, 1633 170th St. Surrey, BC, V3S 9X3.
This residency accommodates artists working in painting, drawing, installation, photography, sculpture, print, fibre, video, film, literary, and applied arts for the production of new or ongoing bodies of work.
In exchange, artists will schedule at least 4 days during Garden Open days (Saturday or Sunday only) to interact with the public through their art, with the possibility to exhibit their AiR project in the garden.
In exchange, artists will donate a piece of art created during their residency to the DHGCTS with the understanding that the donation may be auctioned, sold, or gifted as deemed appropriate. Additionally, in cooperation with the artist, DHGCTS reserves the right to reproduce images of selected artwork which may be sold to the public. Donations must be received by the Society within six months of the completion of the residency.
A tour of the garden before submitting proposals will be available on request.
This residency is open to artists throughout the City of Surrey and all other communities from Squamish to Hope. The DHGCTS is seeking an artist who will benefit from outdoor work experience in the garden and has an ongoing, self-directed, independent practice. Multiple artists may apply together, and collectives are welcome. Suitability and limitations of the outdoor environment of the garden park will be taken into consideration. Artists are required to become a member of the DHGCTS in order to participate in the program, but do not need to be members to apply.
Application submission deadline: NOON, on April 30, 2024

Darts Hill Garden Conservancy Trust Society has partnered with the Z.Inc Artist Collective to present temporary art exhibitions in past years.
The Z.Inc Artist Collective has decided to take a break in 2024, but we hope to see them back in the garden in 2025.
