The Flying Nun program at the East Sydney Community and Arts Centre in Darlinghurst showcases outcomes from our performing arts residencies featuring local fringe performance that otherwise wouldn’t see the light of day. Applications for the 2021 program open 18 January. Residencies include stipend, development and marketing support.
Brand X invite Visual Artists and Designers to apply for seed-funding to assist in the manufacturing of bespoke, fine-grain products and artworks made by local artists. Work will be sold through our on-line gift shop to generate income for the makers. The program aims to invest in new ideas and build new audiences for participating artists.
The City of Sydney and Brand X match properties available on a temporary basis with short term creative projects including creative working studios, exhibition space, creative retail and temporary office space for project work.
