Northern Beaches Council is inviting talented local artists to apply for Councilís 2019 Artists in Residence Program at the Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre and the Eramboo Artist Environment, both in Terrey Hills.

Applications are now open and will close 5pm Monday 12 November.

The Artists in Residence Programs provide opportunities for local artists across practices including, but not limited to visual arts, sculptural, jewellery, installation, print making, screen, digital, mixed media or photography to develop new work in their own dedicated studio space at either Kimbriki or Eramboo.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the artist residencies are keenly sought and give artists living in the local area a rare opportunity to further develop their practice, experiment and build knowledge, networks and partnerships within the local community.

“The Kimbriki residency is at the heart of sustainability and innovation, supporting professional artists to develop a body of work entirely using resources that have been recovered from the Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre.

“Eramboo has been a haven for creativity for decades. This residency provides a peaceful sanctuary for artists in the middle of the bush, using the unique and diverse natural surroundings as inspiration.”

At the end of their residency, artists are provided opportunities to present their work in a public space, prominent location, or an exhibition space.

At Kimbriki, two artists will have free access to a nine month, non-residential studio space to create a site-specific body of work. They will also receive a $3,000 allowance for materials.

At Eramboo, a six month residency that provides free non-residential studio space is up for grabs with a $2,000 allowance for materials. An added bonus is being able to tap into professional development support and networks that Eramboo provides.

For more information, please go to Council’s website.

The current artists in residence at Kimbriki, Angela van Boxtel and Colin Razor (Fraser the Razor) will present their artwork produced at the Resource Recovery Centre in a special exhibition

at Creative Space in North Curl Curl from 17 October to 28 October 2018.

There will also be a free Waste Factory Workshop with Angela van Boxtel on Saturday, 20 October from 1.00 – 2.30pm, however bookings are essential.
