City of Waterloo Artist in Residence Community Art Project


The City of Waterloo is pleased to announce Lucy Bilson as the 2021 Artists in Residence. Throughout the summer, Bilson will engage the community in a series of community engagements both online and in-person. These engagements will invite the community to participate in the creation of a collaborative art project which will be exhibited in October 2021 during the City’s Culture Days festivities.

Submissions will be assembled into a community exhibit that will be shared as part of a community art project. Final renderings of the community art project will be shared social media, the City of Waterloo website, and on the Create Waterloo YouTube channel.

For more information or assistance, please contact Sonya Poweska, Culture Program Specialist, at
