APPLICATIONS CLOSED: 5pm Monday 21 January 2019

Guildhouse is calling for expressions of interest from artists, creative collaborators, makers and writers for ART WORKS – a residency program we are delivering in partnership with the City of Adelaide at the Minor Works Building located just off Stamford Court between Sturt Street and Wright Street. Joint applications are welcome if appropriate.


2 x 4 month residency opportunities are available between February and September 2019 for an artist/team of creative collaborators with a socially-engaged agenda to foreground social issues and collaboration with engaged communities to culminate in (for example) an exhibition, demonstration, performance or event.

Without the freedom that Art Works allowed us, we would not have had the time to enter our production into the variety of opportunities that will now be the foundation of our development.

Watch Kaspar Schmidt Mumm and collaborators IMMI perform in the ART WORKS space.



1 x 8 month residency opportunity is available for a writer/collective to work flexibly across the duration of the ART WORKS program.  The writer-in-residence will respond to this site of cultural activity and produce responses to each of the artists in residence, including short form suitable for social and digital channels.

This residency 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, Rayleen Forester.
