Rosamond McCulloch Studio Residency, Paris
Applications for the University of Tasmania’s prestigious Rosamond McCulloch Studio Residency in Paris for 2023 are now closed. Applications for the next residency round will open in May 2024.
The Rosamond McCulloch Studio is a residential studio in the world-renowned Cité Internationale des Arts complex in Paris and a short walk from many of the city's major museums.
Each year the University of Tasmania offers several residencies at the Studio, which is situated in a beautiful eighteenth century town house close to the main Cité complex.
Since its establishment in 1991, many Tasmanian artists have had the opportunity to live in the heart of Paris while studying and developing new work.
Creative Tasmanians including visuals artists, musicians, performers and writers who are graduates of the University of Tasmania are encouraged to apply.
There will be up to six residencies provided across 2024.
More details about funding opportunities are available on the Funding page.

The Cité Internationale des Arts complex is situated on the right bank of the river Seine, a stone's throw from Notre Dame on the Ile de la Cité and within easy walking distance of all the main Paris galleries, including the Louvre.
The Cite complex has approximately 300 studios, owned by universities and arts organisations around the world. The buildings also house common rooms and a library, a large gallery, a concert hall, as well as printmaking and photographic facilities.
The Rosamond McCulloch Studio is in an 18th-century townhouse, a block back from the main Cité complex. It is a small apartment with kitchen and bathroom facilities, a combined living room and workspace, and a bedroom on a mezzanine floor. Two sets of French windows overlook a charming garden.
One residency will be supported by the $10,000 Mary Maxwell Travel Scholarship (valid to Honours and Postgraduate students in the School of Creative Arts and Media).
One residency will be supported by the Wayne Brookes Visual Art Travel Prize, valued at $4000, and awarded to the most worthy Visual Art candidate to support their Residency.
All other residencies are offered on a self-funded basis for a two-month period.
All associated costs must be covered by the applicants awarded self-funded residencies. Please be aware that these costs include the monthly management charge that the Cité and the University require (See the Cité Service Fees below).
The Cité Service Fees are approximately 516€ per month per person, to be paid directly to the Cité management; plus a University of Tasmania administration fee of 20% of the Cité Service Fees per month payable to the University of Tasmania' School of Creative Arts and Media before departure.
The Cite Internationale des Arts manages the studio. Residents pay rental fees, including monthly service charge.
The School of Creative Arts and Media requests a payment of 20% of the Cite’s rental charge as an administrative fee which provides a small income to cover miscellaneous expenses such as the purchase of new furniture or white goods.
