FCG is beyond excited to partner with Near North Mobile Media Lab (N2M2L) to invite one London-based and one visiting artist, curator, writer, and/or collective for a 6-7 week long research & production residency in London, ON. Residency participants do not need to finish a project in the allotted time, instead they are asked to present the production/research completed during an artist talk at the conclusion of the residency.

FCG is once again collaborating with H.B. Beal Secondary School to allow artists, writers, and curators to produce, educate, discuss, and collaborate with the next generation of artist leaders in London, ON. FCG will also be partnering with TAP Centre for Creativity for studio space for selected participants.

H.B Beal High School is known for BealArt, an arts-focused educational institution, complete with many various production facilities and studios. The BealArt program has university articulation agreements with universities across Canada. Grade 12+ (1 and 2 years after grade 12) courses at Beal Art include Studio Practice (one year intensive) and Specialist (one year intensive) that prepare students for post-secondary and professional practice.

Expectations: Selected participants are expected to work at least two days at H.B Beal High School, along with studio time at TAP Centre for Creativity. They will also be expected to participate in a final end-of-residency presentation where each participant presents their production/research to the London community. Selected residency participants will also be expected to discuss their respective practice with students and interested adolescents in order to contextualize, educate, and inform about the various issues and themes present. This would take place through workshops, art talks, critiques, studio visits, and/or other activities during the duration of the residency (to be discussed with selected artists).

The Near North Mobile Media Lab actively promotes media arts access for all artists, regardless of age, class, gender, sexual orientation, race or ability. We provide the tools that media artists, students, and media arts audiences in Northern Ontario need to produce, present and enjoy all forms of contemporary media art. We envision a thriving media arts community in northern Ontario that produces innovative work, has access to contemporary presentations, and is an active participant in a national discourse by overcoming regional limitations.
