2018 Artist-in-Residence | Apply now!

Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre’s Artist-in-Residence program has been designed to allow craft practitioners and designer-makers to extend their artistic boundaries through a unique research and residency period.

For 2018, we are honoured to have the Australian National Botanic Gardens as our research partner. Artists-in-residence will have the possibility to work with the team of ANBG with a special focus on the theme of Australian Endangered or Vulnerable botanical species. The research period will be followed by the residency period at Namadgi National Park, where the artist will have the use of a living and working space at Gudgenby Ready-Cut Cottage. Artists may be asked to engage with the community and participate in a public program including an open day at the Cottage. Resulting work from the Artist-in-Residency program will be displayed in an exhibition.

N.B. Previous participants are not eligible to apply again for the residency.
