2016 Art at the Heart | APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

Tuesday, 22 December 2015

Key Dates:

Applications close: Monday 29 February 2016 (4pm WA time)

The Shire of East Pilbara is proud to announce that applications are now open for Australia’s richest (up to $55,000) Artist in Residency Program ‘Art at the Heart’. 2016 marks the third year of Art at the Heart’s four-year program.

This year the program aims to:

• Develop the capacity of local artists and the wider community
via community engagement and creative exchange.

• Explore and showcase the local region through the exploration
of the 2016 theme ‘light’.

• Contribute to and creatively enrich the Shire of East Pilbara
through a legacy artwork.

• Enable an artist to develop a body of work and further their
creative practice.

• Promote and create an awareness of the region, residency and
artist (both nationally and internationally).

Over a 6 – 8 week period in August/September 2016, the selected
artist will have the opportunity to develop a body of work around
the theme of ‘light’. This development will be generously supported
by a $15,000 artist fee and access to up to $40,000 to contribute
to the costs relating to the creation of the artist’s body of work,
the documentation of the residency and the costs associated with
the delivery of the community engagement program.

Information on how to apply for the residency is provided in the
Artists Brief which is available along with the application form by
emailing cacd@eastpilbara.wa.gov.au.

Please note that
on-line lodgement of applications
will be available in
late-January 2016.

Further information can be obtained by email at cacd@eastpilbara.wa.gov.au,
or by phoning +61 8 9175 8000 and asking for the Community
Wellbeing section.
