Applications for 2019 residences are now open and will close on June 18th 2018.

Testimonials from past artists-in-residence:

The on site accommodation is varied and lovely, the atmosphere is very conducive to getting rich work done (writing, visual arts, dance, music, performance, media arts, art-science, land art etc) and the Site-works Festival each year can be a perfect place for subsequent dissemination. Their local links with the indigenous community and science community are also fabulous and long standing (Bundanon Alumnus).
