Artists in Residence

 SALA Festival has partnered with various organisations to offer an array of artist-in-residence opportunities to South Australian artists. In the past, some of the organisations have included the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Adelaide Festival Centre, Arts in Health at Flinders Medical Centre, SAHMRI (South Australian Health and Medical Research Insitute) and Country Health SA. These residency opportunities allow artists to access extraordinary spaces to make work and develop their practice by engaging with different sectors of the local community. Although each residency opportunity is unique, all residencies generally result in an exhibition or presentation of work during the SALA Festival.

2020 SALA Festival Artist Residencies

Artist: Madison Bycroft
Known for her video installations and sculptural work which often intersect, Bycroft is a multi award-winning artist whose work has been exhibited all over the world -most recently at this year’s Venice Biennale and the 2019 Milan Design and Architecture Triennale.

Thomas Readett at Avenues College
Artist Thomas Readett will develop a series of online videos and content for students to engage with in their classroom. The content will be structured around the final outcome which is a mural at the school. Students will learn how to develop technique, conceptual practice and methods relating directly to street art. Due to the restrictions in place for COVID, Thomas will provide a live feed for the students for every lesson they are developing their ideas for feedback and encouragement.  The ideas and subject matter developed by students over 4-5 weeks will then be structured into the design for the final mural so the students work can shine in a public space.

More appointments pending.
