Artist in Residence
2019 Woollahra Artist in Residence Program
The 2019 Woollahra Artist in Residence Program takes place between March and December 2019. The program provides rent-free, non-residential unfurnished studios for artists to work in. In return for rent-free use of the studio space, resident artists will devise and deliver a community engagement project reflecting an aspect of life in the local area. Resident artists are also expected to grant studio access to visitors. Artist-led projects will require the active participation of Woollahra residents. During the residency, the artist is also encouraged to pursue their own work.
The Woollahra Artist in Residence Program is based at the EJ Ward Paddington Community Centre.
