Open to visual artists, craftspeople, designers and media artists.
The Samstag Program has become a key partner of the Australia Council for the Arts’ Visual Arts Board, in an innovative cultural collaboration intended to provide professional development opportunities for Australian artists.
The Visual Arts Board’s International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), New York studio, is offered to Australian artists in partnership with the Samstag Program. Two annual studio residencies known as the ‘Australia Council for the Arts and Anne & Gordon Samstag ISCP Residency’ are on offer. Each residency, supported by associated accommodation in an apartment in Long Island, provides a stipend of $25,000 (Australian dollars) per six-month period.
The experimental funding partnership has been inspired by the generous vision of Gordon Samstag – a born-and-bred New Yorker who cherished his hometown as a destination for Australian artists. Recipients of the Australia Council for the Arts and Anne & Gordon Samstag ISCP Residencies, will be formally acknowledged as Samstag Scholars.
Australia Council for the Arts and Anne & Gordon Samstag ISCP Residencies are open to practicing visual artists, craftspeople, designers and media artists. The ISCP Residency grants are administered through the Visual Arts Board.
Closing date for applications is August 20th.
Decisions will be advised in November 2012.
