ART WORKS is a program of residencies and creative workshops designed to provide a city-based platform for artists to pursue new ways of working and engaging with audiences.

A new initiative delivered by Guildhouse in partnership with the City of Adelaide.

This residency has encouraged me to vocalize and interact more during the developmental stage of my piece; not normally a process I undertake when writing. I have participated in many enlightening conversations with artists, community members and workshop attendants over the last few months forming new points of perspective and better understanding the depth of my subject.

ART WORKS Writer in Residence, 2018.

The residency finds its strength in: It’s location; it’s socially engaged forum; and support from
Guildhouse & Adelaide City Council. The space is perfect for workshops, events and all other types
of single day/evening activities.

ART WORKS Artist in Residence, 2018.

Artist in Residence

Two Artists in Residence with a socially-engaged practice, will utilise the City of Adelaide’s ArtPOD in the breezeway at 25 Pirie St, Adelaide and collaborate with engaged communities. This will explore at least one key element of directions identified in the City of Adelaide’s Strategic Plan to culminate in an exhibition, demonstration, performance or event.

Writer in Residence

The writer will engage with the artists in residence and the emerging curator to respond to themes and ideas that are developing across these programs. The resulting work will document the projects undertaken and enable storytelling.

Emerging Curator

The Emerging Curator will facilitate broad cultural engagement and audience development through a program of artist and writers in residence, exhibitions and public programs, supported through embedded professional mentoring.
