Artist residency opportunity on offer

INNER West Council will be funding two EDGE Artist in Isolation residency opportunities as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival (SFF)

The festival will includes live performances at 5 Eliza Street, Newtown, via Made In Sydney program, a series of global partnerships connecting and profiling works by Sydney and International artists through the online initiative Global Fringe, and the artist residency program Art in Isolation, providing much needed funding and support to local independent artists.
Artists are invited to apply for a two-week paid residency to develop bold new pop-up/roving performances inspired by the places and stories of our Inner West.
This is part of the council’s ongoing commitment to supporting artists through Covid-19, through funding development of new works and future employment opportunities.
Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne says now, more than ever, he is acutely aware of the council’s important role in supporting local creatives, the backbone of the Inner West identity and economy.
“This partnership with Sydney Fringe will lead to new employment opportunities for artists, as well as innovative new works to revitalise our public spaces and precincts,” he said.
The Sydney Fringe CEO and Festival Director Kerri Glasscock said the continued support by Inner West Council had directly enabled them to funnel greatly needed funding to independent artists and practitioners during their time of need.
“Sydney Fringe had its birth in the Inner West and we are incredibly grateful to be able to collaborate during this difficult year to ensure that the Inner West of Sydney remains the cultural capital of NSW,” she said.
Applications are now open for the residency program and close on Wednesday, October 28.
