Woollahra Council is inviting applications from artists interested in taking up a short-term residency in the municipality and creating works that will add to the artistic fabric of the Woollahra community.
The inaugural Arist in Residence program is open to artists practicing all forms of art, with one of the residencies reserved for a writer. They will be available for periods of six to nine months.
“Woollahra is a vibrant community with a strong cultural history and ensuring that the arts continue to play an important role in this area is a priority for council,” said Mayor of Woollahra, Councillor Andrew Petrie.
“In the past Woollahra has been home to many of Australia’s most acclaimed artist and authors. We want to ensure that residents continue to have access to cultural activities and life-long learning opportunities through the arts,” said the Mayor.
Work spaces and shared facilities will be provided rent-free for the successful applicants at the EJ Ward Paddington Community Centre. The chosen artists will be responsible for all the preparation of their work space and must provide theor own materials.
Guidelines and applications can be found on the Arts and Culture page of Council’s website. Applications close on Friday, 16 November.
