Bayside Artist in Residence Program

Bayside Council is hoping to expand its arts and cultural offering to include an annual Artist in Residence Program that would highlight the arts and culture of its multicultural community and First Nations people.

"I see this as an exciting opportunity to learn more about our cultural diversity and engage directly with artists," Mayor Dr Christina Curry said.

"I look forward to reading the report that will be presented to Council at a later stage."

An early draft of Bayside Arts and Cultural Plan, put together by Council's Arts and Culture Specialist, will be included in the May City Services Committee Meeting agenda.

The Bayside Arts and Cultural Plan will include an option for an Artist-in-Residence program is included in the Arts and Cultural Plan.

An Artist in Residence Program will give local artists the opportunity to work outside of their usual environments, providing them with time to reflect, research, or produce work.

The artists will also be able to explore new locations, different cultures, experiment with different materials and engage with the community.
