    Creative Spaces in collaboration with Sunshine Coast Council is excited to launch The Crows Nest Artist in Residence. Perched atop the Maroochy Sailing Club, the Crows Nest is a small space with views out across Maroochy River towards Mt Coolum. Situated on beautiful Chambers Island, accessed via a footbridge, this new creative studio could be yours, free for three months. 

    The space would suit writers, digital and fine artists and creatives with a lighter footprint. It can accomodate one person looking for inspiration and solitude or a collective of two looking to collaborate in paradise. Create, swim and gaze out across the water in what is possibly Australia's most beautuful studio space.

    To apply, simply share your practice, any supporting examples of work and why you would like to inhabit this space. 

    In exhange for this space, you may be asked to contribute to a public outcome such as workshops, open studio, exhibition or interview.
