Applications are now open for our 2024 Artist Residency Program, inviting professional artists to spend two weeks on either (or both) of our Hiltaba and Witchelina Nature Reserves.
Founded in 2019, Nature Foundation’s Artist Residency Program aims to:
- reflect Nature Foundation’s conservation vision by encouraging artists to become immersed in the natural environment, and to respond through their creative work.
- support the work of participating artists with an interest in remote natural environments, by providing them with opportunities for substantial visits to Witchelina or Hiltaba, or both.
We invite artists each year to spend up to two weeks on either Witchelina, Hiltaba, or a week on each. Nature Foundation provides participating artists with accommodation and general support, including orientation to, and guidance on the Reserves.
We will also promote and sell works generated from artists’ visits through its media and exhibition opportunities: website, newsletter, email, social media and member events.
Nature Foundation invites applications from professional artists. Artists may be regularly selling work and exhibiting in a commercial gallery, but this is not a prerequisite. A living away from home allowance commensurate with the length of a Residency will be offered to participating artists.
Aboriginal artists are strongly encouraged to apply.
Closing date for Residency applications is Wednesday 28 February 2024.
