INDIGENOUS VISUAL ARTS RESIDENCIES - call for artists now open!
Arts Victoria's INDIGENOUS VISUAL ARTS RESIDENCIES is a new residency
program funded by the Victorian Government providing Victorian Indigenous
visual artists and art-workers vocational residencies within a range of
arts organisations in Victoria.
The residency program aims to:
· Encourage the participation of Indigenous visual artists and
arts-workers in the wider visual arts industry;
· Address the lack of Indigenous arts workers within the arts
· Connect Indigenous visual artists and arts workers with arts
organisations and widen networks to facilitate knowledge sharing;
· Foster career development opportunities.
The residencies will have a vocational focus which aims to provide
Indigenous artists and arts workers in Victoria with the opportunity to
undertake challenging roles in arts organisations. The base salary for
these positions begins at $43,644 pa (pro rata).
We are now calling for submissions from Indigenous visual artists and
arts-workers interested in undertaking a residency placement within an art
gallery or arts organisation. There are a range of host organisations to
choose from which are detailed on the application form.
