Arts Tasmania

Education Residencies 2019-20

Education Residencies give opportunities for Tasmanian artists to focus on their practice in an educational environment.

They offer a chance for young people to build their capacity to engage in the Arts. They also offer artists a chance to inspire or re-connect with their practice.

The Minister for the Arts has approved funding of $40 000 to four artists in this round.

Funding recommendations were made by expert peers drawn from the Cultural and Creative Industries Expert Register.


Eloise Kirk - $10 000 towards a residency at Hobart College, Hobart

Luke Campbell - $10 000 towards a residency at Rosny College, Rosny

Sofie Burgoyne - $10 000 towards a residency at Don College, Devonport

Susan Simonini - $10 000 towards a residency at Launceston Grammar School, Launceston

Feedback from the expert peers

The peers gave the following feedback to help current and future applicants:

  • Discuss your application - even if you have previously applied for funding - with a member of Arts Tasmania’s Grants Team. Guidelines can change from round to round and it is important to make sure your information is up to date.
  • The Education Residencies are an artist in residence program. Peers were supportive of applications that will let artists develop their practice in an education environment.
  • Write in plain English and avoid unnecessary artform specific language or jargon.
  • Proof read all parts of the application before submitting.
  • Make sure artistic support material is recent and relevant to your application.
  • Letters of support should be targeted and specific to your application. A good letter of support should also show strong and genuine enthusiasm for your project.
  • Clearly show how your project will benefit your practice, young people, educators, the school (including the wider school community).
  • Include accessible timelines that are clear, easy to read and that show all the activities in your project.
