She is the inaugural awardee of the Banff Centre and Hynatyshyn Foundation Emerging Atlantic Artist Award (2016), and a recipient of the Canada Council International Residency Program at La Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris.


Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity is pleased to announce a crosscountry tour with Atlantic Canadian visual artist Anne Macmillan (Halifax, Nova Scotia), the inaugural recipient of the Emerging Atlantic Canada Artist Residency. During her self-directed residency at Banff Centre, Anne created an animated video inspired by the geographical relationship of mountains and caverns in the Banff region called This Place (2016).
