Artists in Residence

ATW offers artists and craftspeople working in any medium, and at any stage of their career, the chance to broaden their practice through our world-renowned residency program. Each year, artists immerse themselves in our vibrant studio – exchanging knowledge and skills with our tapestry weavers and engaging with local communities.

Applications for 2024 residencies have now closed Information about the 2024 program can be viewed here.

2023 residencies were awarded to the following artists: Studio Brieditis & Evans (Katarina Brieditis & Katarina Evans) (Sweden), Awarded the Irene Davies International Residency Scholarship| Donna Blackall (Yorta Yorta) | Jacky Cheng (WA) | Kait James (Wadawurrung) | Cara Johnson (VIC) | Misako Nakahira (Japan) | Joanne Nethercote (ATW x APA Residency).

In an ongoing partnership with Arts Project Australia (APA) the ATW will offer a residency place to an APA artist in 2023. This is an important professional development opportunity for the APA artists to create work in an inspiring studio environment and forge new connections in the Melbourne contemporary art community.
