The Tactile Arts Artist In Residence (AIR) program is the longest running Artist In Residence program in the Northern Territory. It supports artists and artisans to develop their practice by providing a dedicated studio space, use of our gallery to mount an exhibition, plus a financial contribution towards exhibition costs.

Throughout the residency there will also be opportunities for delivering workshops based on current practice. The studio space is made available for a period of three to six months and is open to the public. The residency will culminate in an exhibition of works created during the AIR period. The AIR program has supported artists working in ceramics, contemporary glass, painting, textiles and fibre. All artists must be willing to demonstrate their craft and welcome visitors to their studio and workshop space.

Applications for the 2023 Artist in Residence program have now closed.
