This residency supports artists who are already highly skilled both technically and aesthetically.

It aims to assist in progressing artists’ careers by providing them with a place and time for research and development, creating a new body of work, developing a particular idea or continuing along a theme.

Funded on a cost-sharing basis; the residency will provide:

  • up to $2000 per artist towards equipment hire or similar, with this amount being matched by the recipient
  • a designated work space

The Thomas Foundation funds and artists’ own contribution can be used for:

  • the hiring of equipment and facilities
  • educational programs or professional workshops offered at Canberra Glassworks

Artists may only receive one Canberra Glassworks per calendar year. Artists must be familiar and highly skilled with the equipment that they are proposing to use.

Canberra Glassworks strongly advises that you talk to Artistic Programs (phone 02 6185 0382) about your proposal for a full understanding of the application requirements well in advance of the due date. To assist you with your application, find out about our artist access rates.
