EOIs now open for Local Giants Regional Artist Retreat with Country Arts SA

Are you a regional South Australian artist with a creative project you want to take to the next level?

We’ve teamed up with Country Arts SA to create a residency opportunity for regional SA performing arts practitioners as part of Local Giants; our joint program with Regional Arts Australia and Performing Arts Connections Australia to increase local capacity for artists in regional communities.

This three-day, two-night event provides a supportive, creative environment to test ideas, consider new collaborations and explore cross art form possibilities.

This is an opportunity for writers, choreographers, dancers, directors, actors, theatre makers and designers to come together and explore new project ideas. Applications welcome from…

  • People at the start of their artistic practice
  • Senior artists with significant experience
  • Mid-career artists
  • Collaborative teams (up to 3 members) working together on a single concept who should apply under the name of whomever is the lead artist on the project.

We strongly encourage application from First Nations artists, artists from culturally diverse backgrounds and artists with a disability and are happy to discuss any access requirements informally.

Expressions of interest will be reviewed by a curatorial panel who will take into consideration the calibre of the artist, the quality of the idea and a range of other balancing issues including art forms, geography, and experience to ensure the right mix of people for a vibrant weekend.

The Country Arts South Australia Regional Artist Retreat is produced by Country Arts SA and Performing Lines as part of Local Giants, a joint program by Performing Lines, Regional Arts Australia and PAC Australia, supported by the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund—an Australian Government initiative. Original concept developed by Tasmania Performs, part of Performing Lines, and supported by Arts Tasmania.

In everything we do, we acknowledge that we live on Aboriginal land and constantly learn from the wisdom of First Peoples.

Where we are and the history that precedes us informs how we work and how we move forward.
