Arts practitioners from across the eastern Riverina are being encouraged to apply for a place on the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery’s 2022 Regional Artist Development (RAD) Residency Program.
Expressions of Interest (EOIs) are currently open for next year’s program, which will comprise two residency placements, one in April-May and the other in August-September 2022.
Art Gallery Director Dr Lee-Anne Hall said the gallery would welcome applications from early, mid-career and established artists.
“The RAD Program focuses on the development and mentoring of Regional Artists by providing recipients with a spacious studio environment in which to pursue their arts practice,” Dr Hall said.
“Gallery staff will provide artist support and mentoring, while the civic environment will provide stimulus, energy and connection to other creative practitioners and community.
“The studio is within the Gallery complex (E3) on the banks of the Wollundry Lagoon. It has perfect northern light, wet area facilities and air-conditioning.”
Successful applicants will be granted the studio for a period of up to four weeks and will receive a $2000 stipend to assist with the planning and delivery of the project.
Applications close at 4pm, Wednesday 8 December 2021.
