Did you know that Museums & Galleries of NSW has a grant program open to regional public galleries across Australia? The ACR program offers the opportunity for regional galleries nationally to engage artists or curators to undertake a residency activity. The program is designed to provide artists or curators with the time and space to research, create and/or develop new work.
To be successful, applicants will need to demonstrate a tangible benefit to the artist or curator’s work. In return, the resident is expected to contribute generally to the host gallery’s education and public program activities.
Amount available: 5 residencies of $11,250 each
Opening date: Tuesday 22 March 2016
Closing date: Monday 5 September 2016, 5.00pm
