Belconnen Arts Centre has a seasonal Artists in Residence program and is offering assistance to local artists, writers, performers, new media collaborators and other creative professionals looking to use studio, performance and exhibition space for development and presentation of new work. As part of this program, the Centre can offer significant discounts on the hire of space, mentoring and professional development, plus support through profiling and marketing.
The aim of the Artist in Residence program is to encourage practising individual artists, writers and performers or small groups to develop a work or series of works within the Arts Centre’s available studios and workshops and to then have the opportunity to present or exhibit that work. During the residence period, artists may also invite the public to engage with them and/or offer workshops and demonstrations.
Available spaces include the Dance Studio during school holidays and the Creative Workshops, suitable for creation of larger work and or group work, and writing, multimedia and some performance development work.
Venue specifications, costings and terms and conditions for each of the available spaces are available here.
Belconnen Arts Centre will provide all approved Artists in Residence professional presentation advice and some support, promotional support, access to reduced rates for use of available equipment, additional services on a cost recovery basis and the opportunity to merchandise sales where appropriate.
