Past Residencies

At Umbrella, we seek to provide a relevant national and global platform for our talented artist community. We also invite and accept applications from renowned artists and experts in their field to enable exchanges and connection here in North Queensland.

Umbrella's residency programs began in 2015 with the Grand Hotel Townsville Artist in Residence (AIR) program. Umbrella planned to call for AIR proposals in early 2020, however due to COVID-19 we pivoted to a new At Home Artist in Residence (AHAIR) program. We will be calling for expressions of interest for the JCU-partnered Creative Research Residency from 1 November and will be calling for PressNorth Residency artists again soon.
