For the first time, Dancenorth in partnership with Pryce Centre for Culture and Arts is expanding its Artist Residency in the Tropics (A.R.T.) Program to offer opportunities to Queensland based Indigenous community groups and individual artists seeking support for an arts-related project. This inaugural Indigenous Cross-artform Residency presents the unique opportunity to utilise the Dancenorth studio space for a period of 2 weeks to undertake a project across any artform (e.g. for research/development of a new work, or delivery of a community-based project). A bursary of $3000 will be provided with the support of the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

  • The applicant must be a Queensland-based Indigenous independent artist or community group needing support for an arts-related project
  • Your project cannot include hanging visual artworks on the walls (e.g. art exhibition) as our building is heritage-listed and we cannot affix things to the walls
  • Your project cannot involve the use of wet paint, glitter, ash, foam balls (e.g. bean bag filler) or live flame.

RESIDENCY DATES: By negotiation within 2018

VENUE: Dancenorth- Corner of Stanley and Walker Streets, Townsville, QLD 4810.

WHAT A.R.T. OFFERS

  • $3000 bursary that can contribute towards expenses associated with your residency project
  • Full-time access to a Dancenorth studio
  • Use of in-house PA
  • The opportunity to be mentored by Artistic Director, Executive Director, Company Manager and Community Outreach Manager of Dancenorth, creating a reciprocal exchange
