The UTS Artist in Residence program returns for a second year in 2022. This opportunity pairs one NSW-based visual artist or collective with a UTS faculty to support the creation of a new work.

The UTS Artist in Residence program is a valuable opportunity for knowledge sharing and cross-disciplinary collaboration of mutual benefit to the artist and university research, and recognises the vital role of the arts in fostering the economic, social and cultural prosperity of our communities.


The UTS Artist in Residence program spans 12 months, from February 2022 – February 2023

An artist fee of $10,000 will be paid to the Artist in Residence, with a further $10,000 materials budget to support the creation of a new work. 

The Artist in Residence will work closely with a UTS academic or research area to develop a new work. The UTS Gallery & Art Collection team will assist applicants to find the best research partner for their proposed project. The Faculty Partner will assign a contact person to welcome the Artist in Residence to the faculty, and provide introductions to relevant academics, research areas and facilities.
