Applications for the 2018 Artist in Residence Program are now open. Applications close on Friday 17 November 2017.
The Australian Tapestry Workshop enjoys an international reputation as a leader in contemporary tapestry. It is the only workshop of its kind in Australia and one of only a handful in the world for the production of hand-woven tapestries. The Artist in Residence program invites artists to immerse themselves in the unique studio environment of the ATW.
- Artists can attend for minimum of 2 to a maximum of 8 weeks, full or part-time.
- Artists working in any medium (not just the visual arts or textile-based practice) and at any stage of their career can undertake a residency.
- Artists will be given a working space at the ATW, reasonable use of ATW yarn & equipment and will be paid to deliver a public talk at the ATW.
- The number of artists selected is usually 8 – 10, depending on the quality of applications.
