Submitting a Proposal to the NEW Residency Program at Royal Adelaide Hospital

In association with the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival, the Centre for Creative Health (CCH) at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) is inviting proposals for participation in a sculptural 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 sculptural works inspired by the hospital and its surrounds, through residency in a public area, and which are suitable for display in the small courtyards at the RAH during the SALA Festival in August 2018.

Proposals need to include the following:

1. A current CV for each participating artist

2. A selection of images of previous work with detailed information

3. An outline of the intended residency project (media, concept, possible activities, potential outcomes)

4. The intended timeframe, and

5. An indication of space and display requirements.

The Residency will be coordinated by CCH, who will facilitate all practical and organisational aspects of the Residency. Successful participants will receive office support, as well as facilitated access to selected public spaces in the hospital. There is no designated studio space, but possibilities for work space and storage can be negotiated. Collaborations and the creation of work in public spaces will be encouraged. Participants will have the opportunity to observe and interact with RAH staff, patients and visitors under the guidance of CCH.

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

Residencies are considered according to proposal strength and innovation, relationship to the hospital and its activities and/or specific infrastructure and space requirements.

Artist Fee – selected individual artists or artist teams will be paid a total fee of $2,000 (ex GST) plus $1,000 towards materials. $2,000 will be paid upon signing the MOI to assist artists with materials and expenses with the final payment of $1,000 being issued on completion of the project.
