Thomas Foundation Artists in Residence (TFAiRs)
This residency supports artists who are already highly skilled both technically and aesthetically.
It aims to assist in progressing artists’ careers by providing them with a place and time for research and development, creating a new body of work, developing a particular idea or continuing along a theme.
Applications are now open for residencies in 2017. Download the application form.
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
- a designated work space
The Thomas Foundation funds and artists’ own contribution can be used for:
- the hiring of equipment and facilities
- educational programs or professional workshops offered at Canberra Glassworks
TFAiR residency applications are called for twice each year and only one Canberra Glassworks residency will be awarded to a single artist per year. Artists must be familiar and highly skilled with the equipment that they are proposing to use.
Canberra Glassworks strongly advises that you talk to our Artistic Programs 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, find out about our artist access rates.
