I-Park Foundation Artist in Residence

I-Park Foundation

I-Park is now accepting applications for its 2019 artists-in-residence program. Forty-four fully funded residencies are available between May and December, and range in duration from two to four weeks.
The residencies are open to artists and designers working in visual arts, creative writing, music composition/sound art, moving image and architecture/landscape design.
Located within a 450-acre nature preserve in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), I-Park provides residents with a quiet, retreat-type setting, private living quarters in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, meals program, fully equipped workshop and modest library—as well as creative access to I-Park’s expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.

The Mordant Family VR Commission

ACMI is joining forces with the City of Melbourne and Catriona and Simon Mordant AM to launch the Mordant Family VR Commission: a three year commitment to Australian visual artists, stimulating cross disciplinary collaboration to produce bold new and ambitious works using virtual reality (VR) and associated technology.
Open to mid-career and established visual artists, the Mordant Family VR Commission supports gallery-based practitioners to move into VR, encouraging experimentation and enabling the creation of ambitious artworks that push the limits of technology to engage audiences in new ways.
Awarded annually, the Mordant Family VR Commission recipient will be granted $80,000 for the development and creation of a new work. Commissions will be selected by a panel of national and international industry experts including Director of the Shepparton Art Museum Rebecca Coates; leading futurist, author and entrepreneur, Mark Pesce; ACMI Chief Experience Officer Seb Chan and ACMI Senior Curator ACMI Sarah Tutton, co-chaired by Simon Mordant AM and ACMI CEO and Director Katrina Sedgwick.
In addition to financial support, the recipient will receive expert advice and support from ACMI in the development phase, as well as a work space in ACMI’s vibrant Southbank co-working studio for the screen industries, ACMI X. Ultimately, works will be presented to the public and an edition accessioned into ACMI’s collection.

We are especially interested in receiving proposals that show evidence of community building and collaboration to boost engagement with STEM and those that can support the work of freelance producers whose incomes may have been affected by the pandemic.

Ian Potter Cultural Trust Emerging Artists Grants

Ian Potter Foundation

The Ian Potter Cultural Trust aims to support and nurture a vibrant, diverse arts sector in Australia, and encourage the pursuit of excellence. Individual artists are the essential ‘building blocks’ of the sector, so the Trust’s grants work to reward commitment and passion, and support our most talented artists to develop their skills and achieve their potential.

The Trust offers grants of up to $7,000 to assist early career artists of exceptional talent to undertake professional development, usually overseas. International professional development opportunities allow emerging or early-career artists to gain experience, develop networks and learn skills from the world’s best. We believe these experiences are invaluable for the individual artists and for the ongoing development sector as a whole.

The Cultural Trust funds nationally, and across the Arts sector spanning traditional art forms right through to experimental mediums. We seek to support artists in a wide range of practice areas including:

  • visual arts
  • performing arts
  • dance
  • music
  • literature
  • design
  • multimedia/moving image and,
  • conservation/moveable cultural heritage.

The Cultural Trust has three funding rounds a year. Applications can be submitted in any round.

  1. Nov-Jan
  2. March – May
  3. July – Sept

Please check The Ian Potter Cultural Trust website for specific dates as these vary from year to year. Read more
