We are inviting Expressions of Interest from artists and creative industries leaders to engage with our unique precinct and reshape the way our audiences experience art and place. This residency is designed for artists who want to be an active part of the Convent’s vibrant community and spend time immersing themselves in everything the place has to offer. 

The residency offers time, space, and support to undertake site specific or responsive research, investigation, and consideration. It offers you an opportunity to invest in your own artistic practice and, at the same time, build your professional network and share your work with diverse audiences.

The Studio Residency Program will provide one artist with: 

– Six months of 10m2 studio space (8 August 2022 – 8 February 2023) with 24/7 access. 

– An honorarium of $2,500 to be invested in the studio residency project outcome.

– Access to Convent staff for support.  

– Marketing and communications package to promote your studio residency and outcome/s.
