Art at the Heart

Art at the Heart is a residency program that focuses on the creative interaction between the artist, the environment and local community.

As part of the residency it is expected that the artist showcases their body of work and create an artwork to be gifted to the Shire as a legacy of the residency. If artworks are ephemeral in nature, the artist will need to ensure they can provide a lasting documentation suitable for long tern exhibit that is indicative of their creative process and outcomes created during the residency. During the residency the selected artist will be expected to facilitate a series of community engagement opportunities for local artists and the broader community.
