Aboriginal Artist in Residence Program.jpg

With the support of Arts Tasmania, The Unconformity provides opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and cultural practitioners to undertake paid residencies in Queenstown, in remote Western lutruwita/Tasmania, Australia. The residency is designed to support participants in developing their practice and to enable research and engagement with both the West Coast landscape and local community, with flexibility around delivering a resolved outcome.

The residency is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists or cultural practitioners living in lutruwita/Tasmania and will take place for a period of up to 2.5 weeks in 2022. One residency will be awarded in 2022.

  • $2500 artist fee
