Waverley Artist Studios are for emerging, mid-career and professional artists interested in working within Bondi and the greater Eastern Suburbs area.

Studios are offered in year-long residencies.

Artists in the studios will benefit from:

  1. A fully subsidised studio space for twelve months in Bondi to develop new work
  2. Paid professional development opportunities including workshops, artist's talks, public art projects and live art opportunities

Successful applicants are expected to participate in a compulsory open studio event in the second last month of their occupancy. The open studio event is aimed to showcase works being produced during the time in the studios to curators, artists, funding bodies, and the community.

The studios are located at the Bondi School of Arts, 138 Bondi Road, Bondi.

Applications for the next round of studios close on 14 October 2022 for the studio residency period of 1 March 2023 - 28 February 2024

Applicants should read the guidelines for the program carefully before submitting. In addition to providing examples of artworks, applicants will be asked to provide a biography, list their expected outcomes for the residency, and to explain why the Waverley Artist studios would be beneficial at this point in their career.
