Artist in Residence Program

Andrew Callaghan

Artist in Residence Program

With the support of Arts Tasmania, The Unconformity is providing an opportunity for Artists from all locations, stages of professional practice and working in any artform, to conduct a residency in Queenstown, in remote western Tasmania.

The Unconformity Artist in Residence Program is designed to support Artists to conduct research, develop relationships and focus on their artwork or their practice in the provocative West Coast environment. Artists will be afforded flexibility around delivering a resolved outcome. For more details please read an information sheet here.

Submissions for the 2019 residency program are now closed.
