Artist-in-Residence

Enriching our society through artistic exchange

Perth Festival’s Artist-in-Residence program is unique in Australia and provides the opportunity for Perth’s arts community and students to engage in meaningful ways with the ideas and practice of some of the world’s most visionary artists.

Alongside presenting major work in the Festival and developing ambitious new festival commissions Perth Festival’s Artist-in-Residence is embedded in the community for the duration of the Festival and is involved in the creation of new work, collaborative projects, master classes, education programs, public talks and professional development with Western Australian artists and companies. These rich opportunities are provided through Festival Connect programs such as The Lab, Young Creatives and Producers’ Forums.

With your support, Perth Festival’s Artist-in-Residence program will continue to enrich the lives of Western Australians by providing them with new skills and facilitating meaningful cultural exchange.

Your donation to the Artist in Residence program will ensure we are able to offer this important opportunity to the arts community at no cost.
