  • Print

WINNIPEG - The Manitoba Arts Council has released its list of successful applicants for this year’s Deep Bay Cabin artist-in-residence program.

Getting access to distraction-free creative time in Riding Mountain National Park are:

  • filmmaker Danishka Esterhazy,
  • poet Di Brandt,
  • photographer Sarah Crawley,
  • Manitoba Theatre Centre general manager Zaz Bajon,
  • visual artist Elaine Stocki,
  • novelist Daria Salamon,
  • artist-curator Kegan McFadden,
  • multimedia artist Grant Guy,
  • multidisciplinary artist Hannah Godfrey, and
  • Taiko drummers Naomi Guilbert and Hiroshi Koshiyama.

MAC has awarded one- and two-week residencies at its Deep Bay cabin since 2006. Most of this year’s residencies, which run through early October, are two weeks in length.

Successful candidates in the past have used the time to make work that has gone on to be displayed or performed in Manitoba.

Esterhazy, whose two-week stint ends Sunday, used the residency to edit a short film called Fallen, which examines the relationship between women and the concept of original sin. A public screening of her film will be held at the visitor's center in Wasagaming tonight at 7:30 p.m. Esterhazy currently has her first feature film, Black Field, screening at the Cinematheque art house in the Exchange District.
