The World Heritage Artist in Residence Program is run by the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre to encourage and support innovation and excellence in the development of new work. Applicants are sought for this year’s six-week program. It is aimed at emerging, mid-career and established visual artists working in any medium. Artists will develop new work which will then be exhibited at the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery. Submissions close on Friday, June 2. See bluemountainsculturalcentre.com.au.
