Set amid the spectacular backdrop of the Canadian Rockies, The Banff Centre’s Leighton Artists’ Colony studios offer professional artists an opportunity for concentrated work in an exceptional environment. These independent residencies offer established artists and post-secondary faculty on sabbatical the ability to delve into their work as a solitary retreat, as well as the option to engage within the larger artistic community of The Banff Centre. Artists have used the studios to write novels, poetry, plays, songs, chamber works, and operas. They have choreographed dance and music theatre, curated exhibitions, and have created important visual art, films, new media, and television programming.
