We are so incredibly excited to announce the participants of our Culturally Diverse Artist Residency, a 4 day intensive to upskill and support the next generation of culturally diverse artists based in Western Australia run by Performing Lines WA.
Over the course of the residency, 11 incredible artists (initially 12 but Tao’s flight from India got cancelled) will spend time exploring their own project ideas, unpacking big thoughts through small group discussions and building a community around their creative practice in a nurturing environment ably guided by Anna Reece, Matt Edgerton, Zainab Syed and Melanie Julien Martial.
Initially, we were only going to choose 6 artists but due to the overwhelming response to our application, we doubled the cohort and can’t wait to spend the rest of the weekend getting to know them, and their artistic practice.
The residency will run from Thursday 23rd July to Monday 27th July 2020 at the Subiaco Arts Centre and is made possible through the generous support of Lotterywest and Perth Theatre Trust. Each participant will receive a $1,000 stipend to attend the residency.
