Kids x Art Residency Program

  • WHEN: 5pm to 5pm
    24 February 2020 - 30 November 2020

Our inaugural Kids x Art Residency starts up on 1 March, running across 10 months in 2020. We want to change the way we think about kids, they aren’t just waiting around to be adults, they have their own thing going on. So we are letting go of age limits, and looking for a resident artist to develop arts engagement opportunities for children and their families during their time here at Ainslie and Gorman.

This residency program offers an ACT-based or connected artist the opportunity to develop or extend their practice in working with children and their families.

Our resident will have their own space in the Gorman Commons co-working space and work closely with our Creative Producer team on project planning, and support for the duration of the program. The resident also receives a small stipend as payment for their time in this project and benefit from access to our Marketing team who can provide support for advertising if there are any programs they wish to run.

We highly recommend artists who identify as LGBTIQ+, have lived experience of disability or mental health issues, are under the age of 25 or from a culturally or linguistically diverse background to be a part of the program.

This program is generously supported by JW Land

Update: we have selected an artist to be part of this program, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we now are exploring how and when we deliver this program in a way which ensures the safety of the artist and our staff. Please email if you have any questions
