ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE 2018 APPLICATIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED

The 2018 Cossack Art Awards Artist in Residence, sponsored by Rio Tinto, is a $15,000 Program whereby an artist relocates to Cossack for a four week period and the 2018 winner will be announced shortly.

The $15,000 covers the cost of accommodation with the remaining funds going to the artist for travel, art supplies and living expenses. The residency is intended as a time for the artist to immerse themselves in the unique environment that is the historical town of Cossack. At the completion of the residency it is intended that the Artist in Residence will have developed a body of work inspired by the Pilbara.

The Artist in Residence Program was open to all artists who exhibited in the Cossack Art Awards 2017. The presence of the artist in Cossack is one of great value to the community and as such it is intended that the artist be available for a series of public events, workshops as well as be available for communication with visitors and members of the community.
