In 2003, Potter was awarded a yearlong Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst (DAAD) artist residency in Istanbul, and from 2003 to 2007 was co-director of the international artist residency program at CESTA in the Czech Republic. In 2015 was a guest of both the Australian Arts Council and British Council International Curatorial Visit programs, and has been a jury member for numerous Canadian art awards and jury’s including: a member of the Curatorial Selection Committee for Venice 2019; BMO 1st Art! Selection Committee (2017/18); Sobey Art Award (2016); and the RBC Canadian Painting Competition (2014).
