In 2019 Slingsby is pleased to offer two six-month Artist in Residence opportunities.
Ideas and inspiration may come in a flash, a moment of insight, an instinct that is triggered. Refinement and development of that initial idea can take weeks and months, with the idea refined through experimentation, sharing with a small audience and time away from the idea entirely. By offering a six-month residency we seek to give artists the time and space to develop their practice alongside the development of a project or a series of projects.
This approach mirrors Slingsby’s own creative process. As an established company we are pleased to now have the resources to support other artists in their creative journey.
Slingsby’s Hall of Possibility Artist in Residence applications are encouraged from independent artists, collectives and groups working across all live performance forms, at all stages of career development, people from a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds, those with disabilities, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
The two six-month residencies will run:
Residency One: February to July
Residency Two: July to December

• Slingsby’s Hall of Possibility (venue specifications)
• Access to Wi-Fi
• Kitchen Facilities
• General Office supplies (paper, printing etc.)
• Creative and Producing Mentorship (to be negotiated)
NB: Access to Slingsby’s Hall of Possibility will be negotiated and scheduled around Slingsby’s creative programming and regular and one-off community and commercial hires.
