In addition to our three residency spots within the annual RAD Residency Program, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is partnering with Earth Canvas in 2023 to offer one artist residency on a regenerative farm and studio residency. This is an opportunity for an interested artist to extend their engagement with themes of healthy landscapes, soil, food and a healthy planet. A two week artist residency will be undertaken at a regenerative farm within 50km of Wagga Wagga immediately followed by a two week studio residency at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. Earth Canvas will facilitate a mentoring opportunity with a significant Australian landscape artist to further develop the understanding of working with nature to produce healthy food and landscapes.

The successful applicant to the RAD x Earth Canvas residency will receive both a $2000 stipend with an additional $500 to assist in meeting accommodation costs. Earth Canvas’ contribution towards accommodation means this residency is open to regional NSW artists from beyond the Riverina region.

This partnership between Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and Earth Canvas presents an outstanding opportunity for a regional NSW artist with a demonstrated commitment to exploring environmental concerns to extend their practice and interests beyond the studio and into a regenerative farm environment.
