Sturt’s Artist-in-Residence program invites and attracts experienced artists practicing in ceramics, jewellery/metalwork, textiles and woodwork. We house four to six residencies each year. 

We encourage small scale production and individually designed work, which may be promoted through Sturt Gallery. Professional residencies may be awarded specifically to develop a body of work which can be produced and made at Sturt during the maker’s time here.

Sturt sees the residency program as an important addition to its overall aim of providing support for Australian contemporary art and design through a program of teaching, retail, exhibition and residencies. The emphasis of the residency program is to support those who embrace this philosophy. 

All residency programs are financially assisted by Friends of Sturt.
