Time_Place_Space is a research-based residency that will be hosted in regional Victoria in November/December 2019. Up to 15 Australian independent contemporary and experimental artists will be selected.

Time_Place_Space are calling for expressions of interest from artists eager to be part of this leading edge program.

Time_Place_Space is not like other residencies: it is an intensely rewarding outdoor experience in which artists are collectively responsible for camping, travelling, teaching, learning, researching and connecting.

You won’t be going it alone, though. Arts House provides extensive support to ensure artists get the most from their involvement. Facilitated by a group of expert mentors, participants will form significant relationships, dive deep into extended conversations and unearth new aspects of their own practice. With an emphasis on place and the environment, Time_Place_Space also urges artists to engage with the land on which they create, and to discover its ongoing lived history. Extended time spent with Gunditjmara elders in Byaduk, creating a profound learning experience for those working inter-culturally and in site-specific practice.

In 2019 Arts House will launch a pilot program, offering limited places to artists who care for preschool-aged children, and who would not otherwise be able to attend a residency such as Time_Place_Space because of that commitment.

We will offer up to four places to artists, their child and a caregiver. Both the selected artist and the caregiver will receive a stipend.
