Artists in Residence

Our Artist-in-Residence program is open to professional artists and thinkers from all disciplines, individually or in groups. We support new work, research and collaborations by Australian and international artists, and we host them in purpose-built studios on our Shoalhaven River properties on the south coast of New South Wales.

Applying for a Bundanon residency

Most artists come to Bundanon through our annual open call. Each year we call for applications for the following calendar year. The applications are assessed by industry experts.

Applications for 2018 residencies closed in June 2017. Applications for 2019 will open in April 2018.

The land and air are somehow charged with creative inspiration

Each year around 300 extraordinary artists are stimulated by their experiences of Bundanon Trust's Artist-in-Residence program.

The program attracts diverse contemporary artists and thinkers from both within Australia and overseas. Located in a rich natural and cultural environment on a working property on the Shoalhaven River, our residencies are an excellent opportunity for artists to refresh, refocus and perhaps make unexpected connections with other artists in residence.

Trouble with being here at Bundanon is the damn computer screen tends to obscure my view of the morning kangaroo ballet.

We have two sites for artists' residencies: Bundanon and Riversdale.

Most residencies happen at Bundanon in our Artist-in-Residence complex. The complex offers accommodation as well as studio and rehearsal space for up to ten people in single and shared apartments and cottages.

Larger groups are hosted in the Boyd Education Centre at Riversdale, which can accommodate up to 36 people in shared rooms.
