A new residency for Canterbury-based professional visual artists to spend twelve weeks at the renowned Artspace Visual Arts Centre in Sydney is now available. The inaugural SCAPE Christchurch / Artspace Sydney residency will take place from August to November 2012.
Artspace is Australia’s leading international residency-based contemporary art centre. Housed in the thriving arts hub of The Gunnery complex in Sydney, its residency programme supports artists to create new work that defines the present and proposes future possibilities for contemporary art.
The recipient of the residency will be offered accommodation at the Artspace Visual Arts Centre and return flights to Sydney. In addition they will receive an artist-in-residence production budget, one return economy domestic airfare in Australia and up to three nights accommodation, and the opportunity to give a public presentation of their work via the Open Studio @ Artspace programme.
