The Venice Biennale 2019Professional Development Program leverages Australia’s presence at the Venice Biennale to offer a suite of capacity building opportunities for the contemporary visual arts sector.
The Program is designed to support emerging arts workers by giving them the chance to build their professional skills and expertise, develop new networks, and gain invaluable experience working on a large-scale international project.
Crucially, participants in the Professional Development Program become part of the Australian Venice Biennale team. As such, they will gain practical ‘behind-the-scenes’ working knowledge of the greater Venice Biennale project, the Australian Pavilion exhibition and associated events.
Additionally, participants in the Professional Development Program will be immersed in a world of international contemporary art practice, which may inspire new ways of presenting and making work and promote better understanding of the international landscape.

The Contemporary Art Tasmania studios were created to address the pressing need for affordable, central studio space. Traditionally, local artists have occupied low-cost ex-commercial buildings in the inner city suburbs of Hobart. Rises in real estate market values has meant affordable studio leasing has been diminished, forcing artists to either pay very high rents or move to outer suburbs away from the central arts community. By providing studios at minimal cost, Contemporary Art Tasmania is addressing this need and supporting local arts practice.
Four studio placements are awarded each year to visual artists, curators and arts writers.
Craft Victoria invite proposals from emerging and established makers, individuals and group collaborations. Experimental and/or conceptual approaches that engage with the Vitrine gallery space are encouraged.
