Leighton Artist Studios

Delve into your work

The Leighton Artist Studios are home to ten distinct studios, appealing to a variety of disciplines: writing for stage and screen, composing and songwriting, visual arts including photography, literary translation, curating, and art theory. Some spaces are suitable for collaboration among two artists.

An update on our offerings

As the impacts of the pandemic begin to recede and the campus returns to life, Banff Centre has used the time to refurbish and begin the re-imagination of our Leighton Artists Studio residencies. The first step is the recruitment of a Director of Leighton Artists’ Studios and Program Partnerships, a new role that will focus on supporting the unique opportunity that the Leighton studios offer to artists of all genres.

We look forward to opening up more applications for the 23/24 calender. If you wish to stay informed about our upcoming programs and Banff Centre news, please subscribe to our newsletter.

The Studios

I have never had such a productive and inspiring artistic experience. The natural environment, the resources at the Centre, the positivity and helpfulness of the staff, the array of inspiring domestic and international artists... 

I will never forget it.

Mark Berube, Leighton Artists Studios artist
