Artist in Residence

Applications now open

Applications are now closed for the Georges River Council Artist in Residence Program.

The Carss Park Artist's Cottage, in the former Ranger's house, provides a studio and accommodation for one artist and is located in a picturesque bush park setting on the Georges River. Local, regional and international artists across a wide range of art forms are invited to apply for periods of up to three months between November 2018 and December 2020. This is a self-funded residency creating opportunities for artists' professional development, and to contribute to Georges River Council's collection and cultural programs.

The Artist in Residence Program will foster connections and interactions between people, introducing new artists, experiences and opportunities to the Georges River community.
