The Tasmanian College of the Arts (Inveresk) offers an Artist-in-Residence program for arts practitioners in the fields of Visual Arts, Art Theory, Theatre and Curatorial or Arts Management practices. Normally residencies are allocated on a seven-week timeframe, however shorter or longer residencies can be negotiated. There are up to six standard residencies available each year. The first commences 1 February, and the final ends in mid-December.
Recent and Upcoming Artists-In-Residence
Deadlines for applications are twice a year:
There are also other possibilities outside of these standard times. When making your application please identify two times that would be suitable to your needs. The Artist-in-Residence is expected to carry out their practice while at the The Tasmanian College of the Arts (Inveresk), present one public forum, contribute in an informal way to the undergraduate and post-graduate program and contribute to student discussion groups as requested.
TCotA (Inveresk) will provide residents:
TCotA (Inveresk) maintains a three-bedroom fully furnished cottage with modern appliances, an internet connection via wireless, and a bicycle on the UTAS Newnham Campus (4kms from the Inveresk campus, which is close to the city). TCotA (Inveresk) does not cover the cost of food, air travel and ground transport related to the resident arriving and departing Tasmania.
Note that the cottage has three bedrooms, and the arrangement is normally for two Artists-in-Residence to share the cottage at the same time. The program is for artists accepted into the program, and does not include family members or guests, except by prior written agreement.
Applications are welcome from professional artists any time during the year. Normally, the studio is booked up to a year in advance (see deadlines above). We are especially interested in arts practitioners from all fields whose practice relates to ideas surrounding wilderness and the natural environment; and community, place and change.
Artists wishing to make an application should send by electronic means a 300 word proposal for their residency, an A4 CV, and as appropriate a maximum 10 JPEG images of recent work; or video file of performance material no longer than 2 minutes in length; or five A4 single sided samples of written material.
