CAT Studio Residency Applications Open

CAT Studio Residency Applications Open

Applications close 1 October 2018

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.
