This year the Artist in Residence Program sponsored by Rio Tinto will be open to all artists that reside in the Pilbara. The residency is intended as an opportunity for a local artist to focus on their artistic practice in the unique environment that is the historical town of Cossack.

The tentative dates for the Artist in Residence program are the 12th July - 26th July 2020.

The program will provide a local artist $10, 000 towards travel, art supplies and living expenses during the residence at Cossack. It is expected that the artist be available for a series of public events, workshops throughout the awards program as well as be available for communication with visitors and members of the community.

Please read the Artist in Resident booklet for more information and proposal requirements.
