The Tarraleah Artist Residency is a core part of the annual program of Performing Lines TAS, creating a space for roughly 20 artists per year to share ideas and develop their professional practice.
This game-changing initiative began in 2012 and is for artists from across Tasmania, from all walks-of-life and at any stage of their career. It allows them to come together and explore new project ideas that often go on to reach the national stage. A range of highly skilled mentors from different arts practices across Australia are invited to inform each project’s development.
In an intensive three-day event, the residency provides an exquisite regional setting, a supportive creative environment to test ideas and push projects to their next level of artistic discovery. After delivering over 10 years of annual residencies, with iterative improvements each time, the Tarraleah Residency affords a highly efficient and inclusive platform for the generation of new works, new networks for artists, and additional resources for the sector.
