Applications for this round have now closed.

Yarra City Council is seeking Expressions of Interest for an Artist-in-Residency program, at one of two sites, the Hugo Wertheim Room – Studio One Community Hub and the Richmond and Florence Peel Centre, Meeting Room, Fitzroy. Both spaces are venues managed by the City of Yarra.

The residencies are open to artists as individuals, partnerships or collectives. Successful applicants will receive exclusive use of the nominated space for a 6 month period.

These residencies are part of Yarra City Council’s Room to Create Program, which aims to keep the arts in Yarra by providing support for eligible artists or groups through its Room to Create Artist-in-Residency program.

The Room to Create Program encompasses a range of initiatives by the City of Yarra to help keep the arts in Yarra. As the City continues to change, presenting challenges to creatives, arts and cultural organisations, Council is providing support to keep Yarra a vibrant, creative centre for the arts through a number of Council-owned spaces, making it easier for creatives to have access to spaces.
