From the website:
Expand your sense of what is possible within and beyond the boundaries of the printed page. This ground-breaking residency allows you to experiment in new writing practices, including digital literature, collaboration, new narrative, and performance. Work with faculty experienced in these realms to develop new or current work; meet, network, and learn from like-minded artist in a community of diverse practices and projects. Experiment and explore; take your literary practice to the edge.
Activities during the residency include one-on-one sessions with individual faculty members to discuss your work, as well as group discussions, presentations, and performances. Group discussions explore issues with new practices and may include philosophical or critical thinking, aesthetic issues, demonstrations, technical issues, and more. Performances may occur in informal or formal settings, as The Banff Centre can offer everything from professionally-staffed theatre venues of various sizes, to small meeting rooms for informal presentations — all venues are fully technically-enabled. Recording facilities are also available.
