Visual Arts Residency Program

PLEASE NOTE: It is with great disappointment that due to a funding cut, our Residency Program will not be offered in 2016.


Brand X have partnered with Auswin TWT Developments to activate a Creative Precinct in Atchison Street, St Leonards. Part of this precinct is a fine-arts studio and gallery housing six workspaces for professional Visual Artists and a gallery to exhibit their work.

Thanks to Arts NSW, Brand X is calling for applications from NSW based Visual Artists to apply for a six-month residency in an open-plan, shared studio environment. The program exists to support the development of creative practise by offering free space to work and exhibit. The program takes a very broad view of the term Visual Arts and may include (but is not limited to) painting, sculpture, digital arts, installation and design.
