Thomas Foundation Artists in Residence (TFAiRs)

The Canberra Glassworks Thomas Foundation Residencies are an initiative of David and Barbara Thomas to work with Canberra Glassworks to support emerging and mid career Australian glass artists. The Thomas Foundation residencies are funded on a cost-sharing basis; the residency will provide up to $2000 per artist towards equipment hire or similar, with this amount being matched by the recipient.

This residency supports artists who are already highly skilled technically and aesthetically to access Canberra Glassworks to help them progress their careers by providing artists with a place and time for research and development, creating a new body of work, developing a particular idea or continuing along a theme. Artists must be familiar and highly skilled with the equipment that they are proposing to use. Residents will be provided with a designated work space and interstate artists will be provided with share accommodation in The Chapel at Canberra Glassworks.

The Thomas Foundation funds and artists’ own contribution will go towards the hiring of equipment and facilities, but could also be applied to educational programs offered at Canberra Glassworks. TFAiR residency applications are called for twice each year and only one CGW residency will be awarded to a single artist per year.

Canberra Glassworks strongly advises that you talk to our Artist Program Coordinator on 02 6163 4519 about your proposal for a full understanding of the application requirements well in advance of the due date. To assist you with your application, click here for artist access rates.
