    Submissions are now Open for the Chantilly Studio Artist in Residency Program -

    The Chantilly Studio Artist in Residence program is a philanthropic initiative designed to provide artists with a supportive environment in which to complete a specific artistic project in  three months.

    Chantilly Studio is a studio collective of some 30 professional filmmakers, writers, producers, designers, animators and similar artists. In addition to the residency program, we offer tenancies from $71 per week and  hot-desks from $31 per day.

    The aim of the Artist Residency Program is to provide a supportive environment for outstanding artists to get inspired projects done and to have an impact on the world.  If you’re at the stage where you need a buzzing workspace to knuckle down and work intensively to finish a project you’re passionate about, this might be the place to do it.

    To help you reach your goal, the residency program provides a rent-free studio space for a period of 3 months. We’ll provide you the space to work on your project and all the tea and coffee you need but of course the rest is up to you.

    Chantilly Studio is located on the upper floors of the Nicholas building, Flinders Lane, Melbourne CBD. The residency is available to  filmmakers, writers, journalists, animators, illustrators and similar artists, both local and international.

    Artistic projects that aim to promote positive social change and or positive community impact are particularly encouraged.
