Established in 2009, the CENTRE FOR THE STUDY OF SUBSTRUCTURED LOSS is a Canadian organization dedicated to the development of applied grief and bereavement research. Documented through the use of practice-led methods within art and comprised of work from an interdisciplinary network of creative and technical practitioners; the CENTRE is committed to the advancement of the arts and sciences; providing programming in support of education; public and professional engagement; and the development of field research in partnership with local, national, and international academic bodies, institutions, foundations, and non-profits.
The artist-in-residence candidates are selected annually through an open call application process or by invitation. The program supports emerging and established artistic professionals/researchers working in any medium/discipline. This can include artists, researchers, curators, practitioners (art therapists, or in technical fields etc.) etc. Residents can continue with existing projects or undertake new research. The residency program encourages experimentation and the development of multi/interdisciplinary studio work grounded in research within the field of grief and bereavement. The work can encompass and explore varying physical and emotional processes (or loss) that people undergo. Previous residents have undertaken both theoretical-historical and practice-based projects surrounding loss. Working with, but not limited to the following subject matter: the aging process and the elderly, cancer, miscarriage, suicide etc. Participants are expected to present their findings when the residency program concludes and are given the flexibility to choose which form of presentation suits their findings best (i.e. brief exhibition, lecture, panel or similar). The residency aims to provide working artistic professionals with a platform for research and production; one that may lead to expanded possibilities, collaboration, a broader network, and possibly new works.
