As a professional development opportunity the AIR program provides pathways for artists to connect their practice to young people and to inspire or introduce students and teachers to new ideas and approaches. Up to seven $9,000 residencies are available for professional Tasmanian artists in any artform. The 30 day residencies are located in selected colleges and independent schools around the state, working alongside year 11 and 12 students between February and July 2015.
I’ve also attached a toolkit and application form if you or you know of any other artists that this is might be of interest too.
We have also just uploaded the first two short snapshots of the artists residencies in 2014 – with the remaining 5 coming soon!
