2008 International Natural and Cultural Residencies in Tasmania


The International Natural and Cultural Residency Program for international artists is the opportunity for you.This highly sought after residency for international artists is now open for applications for 2008 residencies.

The Deadline for artist residencies occuring later in 2008 is Friday 18 January 2008.

The program offers low cost residencies for an individual artist working in any art form to develop their work in response to place within Tasmania. Residencies are available at Lake St Clair, Maria Island, Port Arthur Historic Site, King Island and Kings Bridge Gorge Cottage. For a snapshot of Tasmania please take a look at Tourism Tasmania’s website via the following link: http://www.discovertasmania.com.au/home/index.cfm
Each residency location offers a different experience, for example:
• Lake St Clair is located in the middle of Tasmania within a very small community. This residency, as well as the Maria Island residency, is suited to an artist who is comfortable with living in a self-contained and isolated environment within a national park.
• The King Island residency sits within the community and encourages some community engagement with the potential of a public outcome.
• Port Arthur is situated on the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania’s south east, and is the State’s premier tourist heritage destination. A residency at Port Arthur is suited to an artist who is also willing to engage with the local community.
• Whereas the Kings Bridge Gorge Cottage residency is situated in the middle of Launceston city. A resident artist must be able to demonstrate in their application a relationship between their work and the Cataract Gorge Reserve within which the cottage is located.
We would like to receive your proposals for a residency. The closing date is Friday 18 January 2008 for residencies occurring later in 2008.
Artists will receive assistance towards the cost of airfares, up to $3,000, and a rental allowance whilst undertaking the residency. Residencies are minimum 6 weeks duration, however this period may be extended upon negotiation with us.
