$350 per week for a residential studio (overseas artists and organising agencies); $250 per week for a residential studio (Australian artists and organising agencies); and $75 per week for non-residential studios.
Successful applicants will be responsible for all other costs associated with the residency including travel costs, insurance, materials and equipment and will be required to pay a refundable bond of $300 prior to occupancy to cover any costs associated with damage or extraordinary cleaning.
The criteria for selection for studios is consistent with Artspace's overall priorities and objectives. Selection and determination of the time frame for studio allocation will depend on the nature of the project and availability of studios.
Artists can apply to the Artspace Studio Residency Program through an annual call for applications. Applications are accepted for both residential and non-residential studio spaces for durations of 3 to 12 months.
The key objectives of the Artspace Studio Residency Program are to provide subsidised studio facilities for contemporary visual arts practitioners, curators, theorists and writers; to support the development of new work for exhibition at Artspace and elsewhere; to facilitate professional development opportunities for artists; and to foster dialogue and exchange between artists, writers, theorists and curators. As in all areas of Artspace activity the Studio Residency Program is guided by a commitment to cultural diversity and to a principle of support for artists ranging from early career to established practitioners. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists are encouraged to apply. Practitioners working in related disciplines such as craft and design are encouraged to apply, as are museums, galleries, art colleges, contemporary art, craft and design organisations and cultural support agencies. Curators, critical writers and cultural theorists are also encouraged to apply for studio residencies.
