Artist Residencies

26–28 July
Darwin Artist Residency, Mary River Retreat
Darwin, NT

Got a big new idea you want to explore?

Performing Lines has partnered with Brown’s Mart in Darwin and Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre in Bunbury to co-produce two artist residency opportunities for artists in the Northern Territory and the South West of WA.

These two residencies are modelled on the very succesful Tasmanian Artist Residency run by our colleagues at Tasmania Performs since 2013.

Artists at all points in their career and from all aspects of the performing arts are invited to submit an Expression of Interest to explore their big new idea with industry peers and respected mentors from across Australia.

EOIs are currently open for the Darwin Artist Residency for artists based in the Northern Territory.

Performing Lines acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we work – the Gadigal in Sydney, the Whadjuk in Perth, and the Muwinina in Hobart – and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

We extend those respects to all First Nations peoples on whose lands we travel and perform.
