Expressions of interest are now open...

Brown’s Mart are calling for applications from Northern Territory performing arts practitioners for our annual Artist Residency to be held at Mary River Retreat from 16th to 18th July 2019.

This is an opportunity for writers, choreographers, dancers, directors, actors, musicians, theatre makers and designers to come together and explore new project ideas. Applications are welcome from…

·         People at the start of their artistic practice
·         Senior artists with significant experience
·         Mid-career artists
·         Collaborative teams working together on a single concept applying under the name of the lead artist on the project.

A range of highly skilled mentors from different arts practices across Australia are provided to inform project development. In previous years these have included Roslyn Oades, Kate Champion, Andrea James, Raimondo Cortese, Julie-Anne Long, Sarah Neal, Elizabeth Walsh, Jo Duffy, Van Badham and Stephen Armstrong amongst others.

This 3-day, 2-night event provides a supportive, creative environment to test ideas, consider new collaborations and explore cross artform possibilities.

The application asks for 250 words about your raw idea and this EOI takes about 20 minutes.

Expressions of interest will be reviewed by a curatorial panel who will take into consideration the calibre of the artist, the quality of the idea and a range of other balancing issues including artforms, geography, and experience to ensure the right mix of people for a vibrant weekend.

Note: Whilst the residency is heavily subsidised each successful applicant will be required to pay a deposit of $400 to secure their spot of which $340 is fully refundable after attendance at the residency and completion of the debrief survey. Applicants experiencing financial difficulty should contact Sean Pardy or Sophia Hall to discuss alternative arrangements.

Both individuals and groups (up to 3 members) may apply to attend.

Deadline for completing this survey EOI is Monday 31st May 2021.

Successful applicants will be notified by June 10th 2021.
