It is a self-led and self-determined residency where artists can explore their practice within a different context. The aim of the program is to have meaningful dialogue between the art ecologies of regional and metropolitan NSW.This opportunity is appropriate for individuals or collectives of two working in visual artists, interdisciplinary arts, design, performing arts,sound, writers, and researchers. Brand X will host regional artists in their City of Sydney Creative Studios.The Cad Factory will host Sydney artists in their rural Narrandera studio.
