SUBSTATION Emerging Artist Studio Residency


The SUBSTATION is seeking expressions of interest from individual artists to undertake our inaugural Emerging Artist Studio Residency.
The SUBSTATION presents an annual curated program of creative development, residencies and presentation. Engaging with artists from across artistic disciplines, working in non-traditional modes and across art-forms, we provide the opportunity for artists and audiences to connect with our unique space and distinctive location in Newport in the west of Melbourne.
Our 100-year-old repurposed, industrial building houses a visual arts gallery, rehearsal studio and large-scale performance space. We encourage artists to engage with our post-industrial space and foster a culture of interconnectedness, collaboration and independence, where we value new ideas, imagination and difference. Our artistic program includes significant investment in the creation of new work by artists from across artforms and a commitment to a collaborative relationship between artists and presenter.
The SUBSTATION is seeking applications from emerging artists of all disciplines and art forms to apply for a studio residency in our venue for 12 months. The successful applicant will receive:

  • A studio space free of charge with 24-hour access

  • An artist fee of $4,000
  • Access to The SUBSTATION’s facilities and resources
