presented by the Friends of Grossmann and Brough Houses in association with the National Trust
This project provides a textile artist the opportunity to develop new works in an environment free from day-to-day distractions. The artist in residence will be encourgaed to engage with the history of the properties, the significant textile collection housed in Grossmann House, the history of weaving and the heritage looms. The artist will be able to promote their work through the open studio and scheduled events, leveraging networks with local artists and the visiting public and grow their audience base. This residency is open to all artists that incorporate textiles in their practice. Whether you are early, late, or mid-career, if you are excited by the chance to interpret history and place, to have it be relevant to a mixed audience in 2024 and into the future, then we want you to apply. We encourage artists in the Maitland, Newcastle, Port Stephens, and Lake Macquarie regions to apply.
