Montsalvat: Artist in Residence


Artist in Residence

Eltham, Victoria

The Artist in Residence program is an exciting initiative, designed to provide artists with a supportive community where they can focus on their own artistic practice and research. Montsalvat offers free accommodation and studio space from 2 to 6 weeks.

The program supports professional and emerging artists with a strong concept of what they wish to achieve during the residency period and according to the quality of the artist’s work and professional promise. Australian and international artists are encouraged to apply for residencies, but funding is not available for travel or living expenses.

Application Information
Applications will be considered throughout the year. Results will be notified within 6 weeks of application.

How to apply
A complete set of application materials, including details on all required aspects may be downloaded.

Montsalvat artists are chosen through a two stage process: initial short listing by staff; and selection of final candidates by a panel of four, consisting of the Chair (member of the Arts Advisory Committee), two professional artists and/or academics and the Artistic Manager.

Criteria for selection include:
• Quality of the work
• Feasibility of the project
