The B–CSC invites applications for its Supported Residency program from emerging and established solo artists working in the following disciplines:

• Sound Art
• Music composition
• Moving Image
• Photography
• Creative Writing
• Media Art
• Curators
• Land Art
• Environment Art

The B–CSC’s residency program encourages dialogue, exchange and experimentation. It provides artists with an opportunity to consider and respond to Victoria’s alpine environment and its attendant complexities including the tension between conservation and exploitation.

One of the residency's key aims, is to provide cultural opportunities to the Alpine Shire community, through public programs implemented by Australian and International artists while residing at the B–CSC. It is expected that residential artists will engage with the community creatively on at least one occasion. This could be an artist talk, workshop or some other means.

Residential artist are chosen based on the their proposal and how it fits with the values and capabilities of the B–CSC.

We expect each resident to arrive with a motivated, self-driven practice. Because of our small size and remote village location, residents must be excited by living in a temporary community of as few as two people, including staff.

The residency is situated in Bogong Village within close proximity to the picturesque Lake Guy. Established in 1940 with European gardens it is surrounded on all sides by Australian forest rich in native birdlife.

Residency period is from October 1 to May 31

Duration of residency: 2 to 4 weeks

Please note that the B–CSC does not have the facilities to host artist working in a creative partnership nor the artist’s family.
