Waverley Artist Studios How to Apply

Waverley Artist Studios are for emerging, mid-career and professional artists interested in working within Bondi and the greater Eastern suburbs area. Studios are offered in year-long residencies. Artists in the studios will benefit from:

  1. A fully subsidised studio space for 12 months in Bondi to develop new work
  2. Paid professional development opportunities including workshops and artists talks, public art projects and live art opportunities

Successful applicants are expected to participate in a compulsory open studio event in the second last month of their occupancy. The open studio event is aimed to showcase works being produced during the time in the studios to curators, artists, funding bodies and the community.

The studios are located at the Bondi School of Arts, 138 Bondi Road, Bondi.

Applications for the next round of studios close on Friday 19 October 2018 for the studio period of 2019-2020.
