The Crows Nest Artist in Residence

Type of space: Residency, Art Gallery, Makerspace (Shared open space for making), Multi-use Space, Non Traditional, Pop-up Space, Visual Art Studio, Warehouse

    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 creative studio could be yours, free for up to 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.

    The simple space is 4 x 4 metres, with a desk, chair, shelves and lounge, with timber floors and 180 degree windows with water views. There is no kitchen facilities. 

    We run 4 seasonal residencies across the year; summer, autumn, winter, spring. Apply via the link and select the season that suits you.
