The Bondi Pavilion Housewarming Program is a new artist residency opportunity celebrating the re-opening of the iconic Bondi Pavilion. The Program will welcome artists into the building before it fully opens to the public, filling its spaces with art and new ideas.
The aim of the Program is to provide space, opportunity and financial support for artists to:
- Develop new ideas
- Focus on their creative practice
- Collaborate with other creatives, and
- Engage with Waverley’s local landmarks and local community.
Open to artists from all disciplines and levels of experience, the Program will support up to six residencies across four weeks in May and June 2022. Individual residencies range from 1-4 weeks in length. Projects will have a dedicated space for the duration of the residency, with access to the building from 9am-6pm, Monday – Saturday.
Housewarming Program provides:
- Artist stipends
- Venue (spaces vary from a fully equipped theatre to flexible multipurpose rooms)
- Technical equipment and limited technical support, to be negotiated with each selected artist/group as required
- Private residency spaces, with dedicated common areas and scheduled opportunities to come together with other resident artists to share and collaborate
- Access to the Bondi Story Room database of local research
- Support from Waverley’s Arts and Culture team for local information and contacts where applicable.
