Applications are now open for the Keilor Art Spaces 2018 Artist Studio Program.
We are currently seeking applications for two studios from practitioners working within any of the arts disciplines (visual, literary, performing, media).
If you are an artist based in the West and looking for a creative space in a supportive arts environment, the Keilor Art Spaces may be for you.
The studios are located in the historic Overnewton Gatehouse on Old Calder Highway, Keilor. The building is one of the few significant nineteenth century buildings in the City of Brimbank. Both studios feature period detail and good natural light, a shared kitchen, access to water and toilet facilities. Studios cost $28.20 per week.
Joint applications from individuals or a group of artists willing to share the space are welcome.
Applications close on Friday 29 June at 5pm
Applications can be found on our website: https://www.brimbank.vic.gov.au/arts-and-culture/public-art-and-spaces
Resident artists are required to enter into a licence agreement with Council via the Art Spaces program. The program is intended to enable artists to extend and/or develop their own arts practice and enrich the arts and cultural life of Brimbank and the Keilor Art Spaces during the course of their time in the space.
The studio program provides networking opportunities and advice in relation to Community Cultural Development as well as opportunities to engage in exhibition, education and workshop programmes. Council has a strict Occupational Health and Safety Policy with which resident artists are expected to comply. Artists must have and maintain Public Liability Insurance if they are successful with their application.
