Blacktown Arts is accepting new applications for two significant artist-in-residence opportunities.
The Pat Parker Memorial Residency honours Patricia Parker’s (OAM) pioneering contribution to the development of community arts in Blacktown and beyond. This residency is open to artists with exciting ideas for innovative collaborations with communities in the spirit of Pat Parker’s passions including women’s rights, lesbian and gay rights, Aboriginal issues and Blacktown’s history and heritage.
The Without Borders Residency is open to artist/s with disability, disability services, arts organisations or community groups working on creative projects and development opportunities. The residency supports projects in any art form at any stage in their creative development.
Blacktown Arts provides up to $5,000 for these residencies to cover artist fees, mentoring fees or production costs as well as in-kind space and some administrative support.
Previous applicants can re-apply, but should contact Blacktown Arts to discuss their application.
Applications close Thursday, 22 March 2018.
