Belconnen Arts Centre has a seasonal Artists in Residence program and is offering assistance to local artists, writers, performers, new media collaborators and other creative professionals looking to use studio, performance and exhibition space for development and presentation of new work.

The aim of the Artist in Residence program is to encourage practising individual artists, writers and performers or small groups to develop a work or series of works within the Arts Centre’s available studios and workshops and to then have the opportunity to present or exhibit that work. During the residence period, artists may also invite the public to engage with them and/or offer workshops and demonstrations.
