The Artist in Residence program will appeal to a range of arts practitioners including visual arts, music, writing, performance, multi-media and community cultural development. Opportunities exist for short and long-term projects, especially those that have a connection to presentation outcomes at Tanks Arts Centre.

Applications are welcome from all parties, with no set application deadlines. We encourage creative ideas from local, national and international artists and community groups. Read more and view the guidelines in the Residency Accommodation Application form ( DOCX, 0.49 MB ).
