ZOOM IN: ON RESIDENCIES IN AUSTRALIA & ABROAD
Everything you need to know about arts residencies from those in the know.
Arts Residencies enable arts practitioners to conceive new ideas, grow their practice and take time away from the daily grind to let the mind expand to great new heights.
How do residency needs differ for performing artists? What opportunities are available in Australia and overseas?
A panel of people with a range of national and international residency know-how share insights, hints and anecdotes in this Zoom In session. Join this discussion for artists interested in furthering their practice through rigorous residency experiences, at home and abroad.
