• 2021 Eramboo Artist in Residence, Catriona Pollard. 

Once a year, we invite artists and creatives to apply for residency opportunities through our Artist Residency Program. 

If successful, you will be allocated your own inspirational studio environment on the Northern Beaches, rent-free, and have a rare opportunity to experiment, express your artistic vision and contribute to the cultural life of the Northern Beaches.

Eramboo Artist in Residence 

Northern Beaches Council and Eramboo Artist Environment have partnered together to provide a six-month artist residency, in an inspirational bushland environment, for an artist to develop a new body of work or a site responsive creative project.

The Eramboo Artist in Residence program offers free non-residential studio space at Eramboo Artist Environment in Terrey Hills, adjacent to the Ku-ring-gai National Park, a $3000 allowance for materials and mentoring and support towards an exhibition or public outcome. 

Eramboo’s unique location gives artists an opportunity to disconnect from fast-paced urban environments, experiment creatively and develop their professional practice in a collaborative studio environment.

Find more details about the program in the Eramboo Residency Guidelines.

Applications for the 2022 Eramboo Artist in Residence are open now, until Thursday 17 September 2021.

Meet the 2021 Eramboo Artist in Residence: Catriona Pollard 

Catriona Pollard is a contemporary artist working with fibres and natural forms. Her abstract sculptures merge foraged and discarded plant material with traditional basketry techniques, transforming organic material into new woven works.

“The more connected to nature people feel, the more hopeful they feel.” - Catriona Pollard.
