Education Residencies 2020-21
- All applicants should discuss applications with Arts Tasmania staff before submitting – even if you have applied in the past. Funding guidelines may change and it is important to make sure the focus of your application is consistent with the guidelines of the program.
- The Education Residencies program is an artist-in-residence program. The stronger applications showed opportunities for the artist to develop their professional or creative practice while working in a school setting. The peers were unable to recommend applications that focused solely on teaching.
- Your application should show an understanding of the many different stakeholders involved in an Education Residency – young people, educators and the wider school community – and explore potential benefits for all parties.
- Your application should show your ability to engage with young people and your capacity to be flexible and dynamic in the school environment.
- Many applications to this round were overly ambitious. Peers encouraged applicants to be realistic. School environments are often complex and the time available for residencies is limited.
- Letters of support should specifically comment on your suitability for an Education Residency by exploring your skills and how you would work in an educational environment.
