Organization: Diefenbunker: Canada's Cold War Museum

Your art, 75 ft underground: Apply to be the Diefenbunker’s 2022 Artist-in-Residence

Help us bring new life and stories to our concrete bunker walls! Create works with a connection to the Diefenbunker, the Cold War, or related themes, for presentation in an exhibition at the Diefenbunker in 2022.

Since 2014, the Diefenbunker’s Artist-in-Residence Program has fostered connections between the museum, local artists, and the wider Ottawa community through the creation and presentation of art inspired by the history of our national historic site. We welcome you to participate in this opportunity to collaborate with us and share your work in a unique public platform.

Artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Artists are compensated for their work. Applications for the 2022 residency are due on Saturday, January 15, 2022. More information can be found at
