Residencies

International residencies provide a unique opportunity for artists to immerse themselves in a new arts context, market, community and culture. The experience enables artists to articulate their practice within a global context and build knowledge, networks and partnerships that support future international arts activity.

Outcomes for an artist on residency can include:

  • Relationships and collaborations that are vital to the development of artistic practice and market opportunities
  • Research and development of new work
  • Acceleration of artistic practice
  • Cultural exchange

Our International Residencies Program has been developed through sector consultation and research. Council has forged partnerships with some of the best residency providers in the world to deliver a suite of residencies that enable the development of individual artists, arts mediators, groups and organisations.
