23581 UTS Artist in Residence Email Banner_FA

A unique opportunity for an Australian visual artist to undertake sustained artistic research with support from UTS faculties and facilities.

The UTS Artist in Residence pairs one NSW-based artist or collective with a UTS faculty partner to support the creation of a new work. This program is generously supported by the Anita and Luca Belgiorno-Nettis Foundation.

The Artist in Residence program is a valuable opportunity for knowledge sharing and cross-disciplinary collaboration of mutual benefit to the artist and university research, and recognises the vital role of the arts in fostering the economic, social and cultural prosperity of our communities.


The UTS Artist in Residence program is to be undertaken over 6 months, from January – July 2021.

A stipend of $10,000 will be paid to the Artist in Residence, with a further $10,000 materials budget to support the creation of a new work. The materials budget will be administered by UTS Gallery & Art Collection.

The Artist in Residence will nominate one of the participating UTS faculties in which to undertake their research:

  • Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
  • Faculty of Engineering and IT
  • Faculty of Law
  • Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building
  • Faculty of Health
