• 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.

2021 Eramboo Artist in Residence exhibition: Catriona Pollard   The Volume of Hope

Northern Beaches Eramboo Artist in Residence, fibre artist Catriona Pollard’s seventh solo exhibition ‘The Volume of Hope’ explores the relationship between nature and hope.

Tapping into the energy of nature, the new body of sculptural work uses traditional basketry techniques, foraged discarded plant material, recycled copper, paper and moving image to meditate on the natural world, exploring its ability to generate hope.
