Artsource Residencies – giving artists the chance to take on the world!
Artsource residencies support Western Australian artist members with the opportunity to develop their artistic practices outside of their normal environment and routines.
We also host artists in our Fremantle studio apartment – making the space available for visiting regional, national and international artists.
Further, we keep members in the loop about other residency opportunities, through our partnerships with organisations around the world.
Global City Residencies
Artsource is developing a series of residencies, across the globe, for professional Western Australian visual artists. Our goal is to develop and offer a range of quality residencies, of varying lengths, open to artists at different stages in their careers. Our first three Global City Residencies are:
Basel, Switzerland: six-weeks in partnership with the Christoph Merian Foundation in Switzerland. More >
Sydney, Australia: 12-weeks in partnership with Artspace in the Gunnery Building in Woolloomooloo. More >
New York, USA: six-weeks in partnrship with Residency Unlimited, including pre-residency support in finding accommodation and studio space. An opportunity to be a part of an international community of artists. More >
Artsource also facilitates a range of other non-funded residency opportunities, including:
Artsource Fremantle Residency Space
The Artsource Fremantle residency space provides artists from across Australia and the world a unique opportunity to spend time in the heart of Fremantle, Western Australia. This studio apartment is available to international, interstate and regional artists and arts administrators. More >
Western Australian Regional Residency Network
Artsource can connect artists to a number of residencies throughout regional Western Australia. These are aimed at giving artists the chance to enrich their own art practice while sharing it with a new community. More >

JustGiving 2-for-1 Campaign: Singapore
With your help, we can send more professional artists on residency to develop their practice, advance their careers and build important international networks. Joining our JustGiving 2-for-1 challenge this December will see your donation doubled by Creative Partnerships Australia. We are aiming to raise $5,000 by Christmas, which will mean $10,000 to put towards not just one, but two artist residencies to the bustling metropolis of Singapore.
Second only to studios as the most valuable support we offer to professional artists, we are excited to be adding Singapore to our Global City Residencies portfolio.
Why Singapore? Singapore is a major visual arts hub for the region with existing connections for Australian artists, gallerists and curators. There is a thriving arts community, with a number of residency opportunities for research, art production and critical discourse.
Artsource is developing additional Global City Residencies to create new opportunities for members and foster the visual arts in our state. Our goal is to develop and offer a range of quality residencies, of varying lengths, open to artists at different stages in their careers. Fundraising has begun and ideas for potential destinations and support are welcome. Please contact our Studios and Residencies Manager, Loretta Martella:
