Submitting a Proposal to the Residency Program at FMC

In association with the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival, Flinders Medical Centre (FMC) is inviting proposals for participation in an Artist-in-Residence program in 2018 from South Australian artists or groups of artists for up to six months.

Proposals should include an expected outcome of new works inspired by FMC, through residency in a clinical, research or public area, and which is suitable for display at FMC during the SALA Festival in August 2018.

The Residency will be coordinated by Arts in Health at FMC, who will facilitate all practical and organisational aspects of the Residency.

Participants will have the opportunity to observe and interact with FMC staff, patients and visitors under the guidance of Arts in Health at FMC.

FMC will require successful participants to complete all the necessary screening and staff orientation procedures.
