Bundoora Nebula Residency winners
Bundoora Homestead Art Centre and Arts Access Victoria are proud to announce the winners of the inaugural Bundoora Nebula Residency.
The Bundoora Nebula Residency Program was open to Australian visual artists, performers and musicians in which half of the residency positions were reserved for artists with disability, or artists who have experienced mental illness.
Artists will be provided an artist’s fee, a working space, a materials budget and, where needed, support to meet the needs of the participating artist including Auslan interpreters and one-on-one support workers.
Eight residencies have been offered in 2017. Each month-long residency pairs two artists, with each pairing including one artist with a disability.
Curator Claire Watson says artists will be inspired by each other and the location to encourage them to explore new ideas and processes.
“This is a unique opportunity for artists to work in a supported environment to develop new work while learning from another person in the same situation. “This residency is all about supporting the creative process,” Claire said.
“The residencies offer space inside Nebula – a revolutionary custom built portable studio – as well as spaces within the historic Bundoora Homestead. All spaces will be open to the general public for the duration of the residency,” she said.
The Bundoora Nebula Residency artists are:
- Fayen d’Evie and Joseph O’Farrel
- Patrick Francis and Sandra Long
- Claire Mooney and Amani Tia
- Elana Grunberg and Hannah Raisin
