Buying Time Residency

No closing date

 An industry professional (a committed creative practitioner or arts worker) can nominate a creative practitioner who they believe will greatly benefit from having a period of dedicated time to work on their creative practice, which the studio and stipend provides.

The purpose of the nomination process (as opposed to an individual application process) is to promote generosity and peer-to-peer reviewing.

Testing Grounds reviews all nominations and EOI’s they receive thoughtfully and in relation to the Testing Grounds selection criteria (outlined in the program structure).

Creative practitioners cannot nominate themselves for the Buying Time residency. Creative practitioners can apply for a residency for themselves through the online Expression of Interest portal.
