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.

2022 Arts in Health SALA residency

Applications are now open for the 2022 SALA Artist in Residence program with Arts in Health at Flinders Medical Centre. 

The successful artist will be invited to be in residence with Arts in Health for up to 3 months, culminating in an exhibition as part of the 2022 SALA festival in August 2022. A stipend of $2,000 will be provided as a contribution towards materials and expenses, as well as the opportunity to sell work at the SALA residency exhibition (a commission of 25% will go to FMC for work sold).

During the residency, the artist will have access to selected allied health, medical, and research areas throughout their time with FMC. Arts in Health will also provide administrative support and access to their team of highly skilled art therapists and art facilitators to support the residency.

Applications close 11:50pm on Monday, 31 January 2022.
