International Residencies Program

The International Residencies Program has been developed through sector consultation and research. The Australia Council has forged partnerships with some of the best residency providers in the world to deliver a suite of residencies that enable the development of individual artists, arts mediators, groups and organisations.

International residencies provide a unique opportunity for artists to effectively immerse themselves in a new arts context, market, community and culture. The experience enables artists to articulate their practice within a global context and build knowledge, networks and partnerships that support future international arts activity.

Outcomes for an artist on residency can include:

  • Relationships and collaborations that are vital to the development of artistic practice and market opportunities.
  • Research and development of new work.
  • Acceleration of artistic practice.
  • Cultural exchange.
