PressNorth Studio Residencies

In partnership with PressNorth Printmakers, Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts hosts an annual residency program for artists in The Studio, downstairs at Umbrella. Artists who specialise in printmaking are provided with short-term (three-month) residencies. 

2022 applications have recently closed for 2023 and we will call for future residents in 2023. 

PressNorth Printmakers is a not-for-profit artist-run-initiative composed of emerging, mid-career and professional printmakers from Townsville and the surrounding regions.
