We are absolutely ecstatic to announce that applications are now open for UTS Library’s Creative in Residence 2023. The program is now running for its 11th year, and we are calling all creatives to come play with us!   

The gist of the residency  

  • You will have 6 months, to bring your vision to life.  

  • Whatever you manifest will become a special part of the UTS Library’s collection. 

  • To compensate you for your time, energy, and actual art making, we offer a remuneration of $10,000.  

  • You will receive $5000 material budget to make your concept a reality.  

What we are looking for  

In search of our 2023 Creative in Residence soul mate, we have a few relationship non-negotiables.  

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is willing to work in any one of our fabulous Library spaces at least once a week so that our community can see you in action.  

  • Is excited to engage with the collection, community, services and spaces. 

  • Is ready to participate in all kinds of events and activities
