Residency ethos and info

The Unconformity Artist Residencies have been designed to support the development needs of artists, allowing time to research, develop relationships and focus on their work in the provocative Queenstown environment.

Artists will be afforded the opportunity to focus upon development of their practice or project with flexibility around delivering a resolved outcome.

The residencies are open to local, Tasmanian, Australian and International artists from all artforms and stages of professional practice. Artists will be supported with an artist fee, in-kind accommodation, per diems and a small materials budget. Residencies will take place for a negotiated period during the 2018 calendar year.
