PROGRAM

Our Residency Programs offer artists and artistic initiatives the opportunity to work with the organisation over extended periods; utilising dedicated or iterative spaces to develop their practice and create new work - across multiple artforms.

Artists engage with staff and industry leaders for mentorship and dialogue to expand their own practices and their connection to a wider artistic landscape. Metro Arts’ platforms such as the Exhibition Program, Performance Program, and MicroFestivals give artists further opportunities to share work in development, public experiments, and finished work with peers, audiences, and the Metro Arts community.

Providing a structure for artists to spend time experimenting within their practice, Metro Arts’ Residency Programs supports artists in making and identifying opportunities for their work to be shown and travel outwards.
