GRINDELL’S HUT ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM – APPLY NOW
NB: Previously a nationwide callout, in 2020 this opportunity is only open to South Australian residents due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Country Arts SA is inviting artists from all disciplines to apply for a three-week residency at Grindell’s Hut located in the heart of the Vulkathunha – Gammon Ranges National Park, one of the many stunning parks in the Flinders Ranges & Outback region of South Australia.
One artist will be selected to take part in the residency program from 2 – 23 October 2020.
Established more than 15 years ago, the vision for the residency program is to provide an environment of extraordinary natural beauty with historic significance for artists to pursue their practice while immersed in an outback environment. The park forms part of the traditional country of the Adnyamathanha people and is rich with cultural significance. It is also a haven for many rare and endangered plants and animals. It is also an opportunity for an artist to take part in the residency with their family at Grindell’s Hut.
The successful artist will be expected to develop a proposal of how they intend to engage with local Aboriginal community members through the delivery of an arts workshop to support skills development in the Nepabunna community, as part of the residency. Nepabunna is 95 kms from Grindell’s Hut.
Country Arts SA will reassess whether a workshop goes ahead as restrictions change due to COVID-19, however we are still asking artists to develop a workshop proposal
The Grindell’s Hut Artist in Residence program is a partnership between Country Arts SA, and The Department for Environment and Water through the Vulkathunha‐Gammon Ranges National Park Co‐ Management Board, and managed by Country Arts SA.
