TCotA, 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.

The first commences 1 February, and the final ends in mid-December. Deadlines for applications are twice a year: 15 April (for residencies in the first half of the following year) and 15 September (for residencies in the second half of the following year).

Recent and Upcoming Artists-In-Residence
TCotA 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 TCotA's Inveresk campus, which is close to the city). TCotA 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 stay and a CV, and as appropriate: maximum 10 JPEG images of recent work; video file of performance material; or samples of written material.
