• Artist Residencies
Wednesday, 16 August 2017

Local artists looking to accelerate their careers and expand their creative networks should RSVP for the upcoming Artist Residencies panel session event on Saturday 9 September.

This free event, which forms part of Manly Arts Festival, will bring successful and innovative creatives together to advise local artists how to apply for – and win – artist residencies.

Event panel members include Pat Grant, graphic novelist and co-founder of the Comic Art Workshop residency program; Mimi Kelly, a photomedia artist who has completed Australian and overseas residencies; and home-grown talents Imogen Cranna and Leesa Knights.

Submissions for local artist residency programs including those offered by Eramboo / Northern Beaches Council; and Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre will open later this year – so it’s not too early to get prepared.

Bookings are essential by Thursday 31 August and can be made via Those who attend the event are welcome to stay afterwards for an Eramboo exhibition opening.
