We’re delighted to partner with UKARIA to offer this residency, which is a fantastic example of how such partnerships can open up new possibilities and opportunities for Australian artists.”

Alison Beare, CEO of UKARIA said; “UKARIA aspires to play a role in shaping Australia’s national identity by being known as a place where new work is born and where artistic collaborations result in new ideas, new experiences and unexpected outcomes. We’re very pleased to be working with the Australia Council to support Australian artists realise their artistic ambitions.”
