      The City of New Westminster is looking for people in the community who can give a group of visiting international artists a place to stay.

      The temporary accommodation is needed as part of a Vancouver Biennale artist residency program, the city said in a release today (May 14).

      The city is interested in hosting up to six professional artists for a stay of four to six weeks sometime in 2014-2015.

      Through the hosting program, international and local artists would have the opportunity to collaborate on new works of art.

      The Vancouver Biennale curatorial team is expected to invite dozens of artists from abroad for similar visits.

      For more information, contact the City of New Westminster’s manager of arts and cultural development at or 604-527-4530.
