The Blue Cabin Floating Residency is a mobile artist residency that inspires curiosity, engagement, and exchange by providing artists with the time, space, and support to reflect, research, and make work in dialogue with the Blue Cabin’s history and the natural setting of the Vancouver waterways while providing the public with a distinct and diverse perspective of our heritage.

The Blue Cabin Floating Artist Residency was based in xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ territory (Plaza of Nations, False Creek, downtown Vancouver) from August 2019 to December, 2021. It will be relocating to xʷməθkʷəy̓əm territory (Imperial Landing, Steveston, in Richmond) in January 2022 for the next two years.
