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 in our world-renowned residency program. Each year Artists in Residence immerse themselves in our vibrant studio – exchanging knowledge and skills with our tapestry weavers and engaging with local communities through public program outcomes including talks, hands-on workshops, and exhibitions.

We are excited to announce that the 2022 residencies have been awarded to the following artists: Kris Coad | Melanie Cobham | Isabel Deakin/Kin Workshop | Alexi Freeman | Matthew Gove (ATW x APA RESIDENCY) | Octora

In an ongoing partnership with Arts Project Australia (APA) the ATW will offer a residency place to an APA artist in 2022. 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. This place will be additional to the 5 places for Victorian artists in 2022.

The ATW artist in residence program is generously supported by the City of Port Phillip, Creative Victoria and the ATW Transforming Tapestry Annual Appeal.
