Artist in Residence
The City of Greater Dandenong Artist in Residence program offers emerging and established artists free studio space in exchange for contributions to the community through creative engagement.
A residency provides a unique opportunity for artists to step away from their usual surrounding for a period of intense focus on their practice in a unique and supported environment.
The City of Greater Dandenong offers residencies across multiple cultural venues including Drum Theatre, Heritage Hill, Walker Street Gallery and Greater Dandenong Libraries.
Residencies are available for research and development or for the creation of new work and are offered individually or in groups.
The Artist in Residence program is open to emerging and professional artists and creative thinkers from all disciplines, from Australia and overseas, including visual artists, digital artists, musicians, writers, performers, producers, directors, composers, curators and educators.
