The Creative Gippsland team annually hosts an Artist in Community program. We partner an artist with a town across the Gippsland region - East Gippsland, Wellington, Latrobe, South Gippsland, Baw Baw and Bass Coast.
This is an opportunity for an artist to spend 10-14 days in a beautiful, small town and create a piece of work in response to the environment and giving back to the host community.
For the host communities it is an opportunity to spend time with an artist with new ideas and ways of looking at their world. The intention behind these residencies is to develop new cultural networks, share skills and inspiration, and encourage collaboration between different people and communities. Both the artists and the community need to be willing to engage with each other in an open minded and generous manner.
