Artist Residencies

Got an urgent new idea for a project 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.
