As you may know, I co-ordinate the Gunyah artists in residence program in North Arm Cove, Port Stephens NSW. Applications are currently open for the 2015 program, which offers artists a retreat type of residency with low cost accommodation for self-directed solo, collaborative, group and family projects.
Gunyah is a unique timber pole house, overlooking a peaceful bushland garden and the beautiful waterways of Port Stephens. The Gunyah property is owned and maintained privately by a group of friends and their families who built the house over thirty years ago. Since 2011 the AIR program has been an artist run, volunteer based, not for profit venture, aiming to share this special place and the inspiring region of Port Stephens.
The 2015 Gunyah AIR program will feature seven residencies, each lasting eleven days. Visual artists, writers, composers, performance and new media artists, curators, designers, arts administrators and other creators are encouraged to apply for solo, collaborative, group and family residencies.
