The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts now invites applications from Queensland-based artists to take up creative development residencies under our Fresh Ground program.

In 2012 we are offering both medium and long-term opportunities for professional arts practitioners, through a flexible residency program providing artist-focused project planning and production support, financial investment and artist mentoring. Residencies will be between three and eighteen months in duration and will offer:

  • financial support of up to $10,000

  • access to rehearsal spaces and technical equipment and provision of technical labour to assist with the operation of equipment, with an in-kind value of up to $20,000

  • assistance in the development and implementation of Business and Strategic Plans; and

  • support in the development of producing skills

From initial exploration of a new idea to fully realising a new contemporary work for its premiere, Fresh Ground is the opportunity to progress your project at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.

Program Manager Lewis Jones will host two informal information sessions to outline the aims of the program and to offer interested artists a chance to ask questions. These will be held at the Judith Wright Centre on:

  • Monday 20 February at 5:30pm
  • Thursday 23 February at 5:30pm
