Artist Residency

Sunsiz Media invites artists and writers to experience the NSW outback to create works of art and spend time in the black opal mining town of Lightning Ridge.
Dr Jillian Gates, artist, educator and director of Sunsiz Media discovered this retreat in 2008 while completing her Ph.D and found it was the perfect site to write and give her students a greater appreciation of en plein air painting.
From 2014 this Residency is open to mid career artists interested in contemporary art practice and writing. Artists working in installation and other spatial and temporal practices who want to exhibit their work in Sydney should contact Articulate project space in Leichhardt, NSW, with a proposal.
Please state briefly why you would like to stay at the Residency and tell us about your project and what you would like to achieve. Please include the dates you require.
Preference will be given to artists who are sensitive to “off the grid” living and the surrounding environment.
