ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Who Can Apply
When To Apply
The Artist-in-Residence program at Umbi Gumbi was initiated in 2018. The program builds on the property's rich cultural history, providing an inspirational place for artists to pursue their practice. We accept proposals for residencies of between 2-5 weeks.
The Umbi Gumbi Artist-in-Residence program is open to all arts professionals from Australia and overseas, including visual artists, writers, performers, producers, directors, composers and curators. Residencies can be for concept development, research or for the creation of new work.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists are encouraged to apply.
Applications for 2020 residencies are now open! Applications will close on 8 November 2019.
Applications for 2021 residencies will open in July 2020.
In selecting successful applicants, we will take into account:
merit of the proposal
mix of emerging and established artists
spread of different artforms
geographical and cultural diversity
For 2020, we will be looking favourably at collaborations between two or more artists.
The Artist-in-Residence program includes free accommodation and access to the artist studio. Studio includes easels. Artists will need to bring their own art supplies.
Umbi Gumbi does not offer stipends, living allowances or travel assistance. Catering is also the residents' responsibility. There are supermarkets, cafes, bakery , pub, gelateria, and a wonderful whole foods store in Bermagui township, a 7km drive from Umbi Gumbi.
