2021 Artist in Residence Applications open

2021 Artist in Residence Applications open

Applications for the 2021 Cossack Art Awards Artist in Residence Program are officially open. 

The Artist in Residence Program, sponsored by Rio Tinto, is a $15,000 program whereby an artist relocates to Cossack for a four week period. The residency is intended as an opportunity for artists to focus on their artistic practice in the unique environment that is the historical town of Cossack. The 2021 Artist in Residence Program is open to all Western Australian artists. The program will support the appointed artist by providing $15,000 to cover the cost of their accommodation, with the remaining funds being provided for the artist’s fee, travel, art supplies and living expenses during the residency.

More information can be found in the Artist in Residence Application Pack. Completed application forms can be sent via email to cossack.art@karratha.wa.gov.au or posted to PO Box 219, Karratha, WA, 6714.

Applications close 5pm Friday 30 April 2021.
