Are you an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artist? Would you like support to develop and exhibit your work in the US?

The Kluge-Ruhe Residency is an exciting professional development opportunity which offers Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander visual artists the chance to undertake four weeks residency at the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and to exhibit a collection of work.

During the residency, artists will participate actively in the life of the University. This participation can be accomplished in several ways such as working on projects with students, demonstrating work in the studio and delivering artist talks.

A grant of $5000 is provided to the resident to cover return flights to Virginia and a stipend towards living expenses. The Kluge-Ruhe Collection will also provide:

*              Accommodation at a guest cottage on the grounds of the museum

*              Program costs

*              Exhibition support

*              Reception and other social events

*              Marketing and promotions

The residency will take place between September and November 2017 or between February and April 2018, with specific dates to be negotiated with the University.

Applications close in Tuesday 4 October.
