Artist Residencies

The Regional Artist Development (RAD) Residency Program is an artist residency with Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. It focuses on the development and mentoring of Regional Artists by providing recipients with a spacious studio environment in which to pursue their arts practice. Gallery staff will provide artist support and mentoring, while the civic environment will provide stimulus, energy and connection to other creative practitioners and community. The studio is within the Gallery complex (E3) on the banks of the Wollundry Lagoon. It has perfect northern light, wet area facilities and air-conditioning. Successful applicants will be granted the studio for a period of up to four weeks, and will receive a $2000 stipend to assist with the planning and delivery of the project.
