The Burrard Marina Field House Studio is an off-site artist residency space and community hub organized by the Contemporary Art Gallery. This initiative seeks to support artists whose practice moves beyond conventional exhibition making, echoing the founding origins of the gallery where artists were offered support toward the production of new work. Our goal in presenting art outside of the boundaries of our exhibition spaces is to reach out to communities, offering new ways for individuals to encounter and connect with art and artists, expanding audiences as well as strengthening our commitment to nurturing artists through example, context and commissioning.
Running parallel to the residency program was an ongoing series of public events for all ages.

The Field House Studio Residency Program is generously supported by the Vancouver Park Board. The Vancouver Park Board’s Field House Activation Program provides project space and access to parks to foster community-engaged activity that focuses: arts, culture, sport, environment, local food and social encounters.
We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of the Vancouver Foundation and many private and individual donors toward this program.
