ArTELIER: Artists in Tasmania: Ecology for Learning, Intergenerational Exchange and Reflection
ArTELIER builds the capacity of the Tasmanian arts ecology by
empowering artists who work with children and young people. ArTELIER began in 2018 and built a network of
26 cross-disciplinary Tasmanian artists, supporting quality arts practice with
children and young people across the state.
If you have an established arts practice that involves children and young people, and you are prepared to contribute to learning opportunities, and are open to ideas, sharing and developing your practice, you are invited to express an interest to join the 2019 ArTELIER group.
2019 ArTELIER Artists have opportunity to:
Participate in and contribute to regular Learning Exchanges:- day long learning experiences, co-designed and led by ArTELIER artists, with provocative presentations for interstate and local artists, practical sessions, critical inquiry discussion etc. You will be paid a stipend of $250;
Be part of a supportive network that advocates for professional, high quality and socially engaged arts practice for children and young people;
Contribute to or collaborate with others in artistic engagements or community projects working with children and young people in various locations around the state;
Participate in a “deep dive” retreat of intense learning and sharing of practice
Access to other professional development workshops and seminars
During six months of the year we run a film club for locals and friends. There are six film nights between April and September. Let us know if you are interested in joining in the club. Occasionally dates need to be changed so always check before you turn up.
This season the theme is female directors. Select your films friends and send them in. Brings some food and drink to share…
2019 Season dates: 21 April, 12 May, 23 June, 28 July, 25 August, 22 September
15 ArTELIER artists will be heading down to Bruny Island for a three day retreat and connection to the Nayri Niara Festival in March. This will give this group an opportunity to share and develop their practice through interaction with a host of artists in the festival and help to drive the direction of the 2019 ArTELIER program.
We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in applications to both Tas Arts and The Australia Council for the Arts to continue and grow the ArTELIER program through 2019. This offers new possibilities and includes some projects, research and a summer camp. We are thrilled at the affirmation of all our work to date and are pleased with this national acknowledgement of the need for this activity in Tasmania.
We shall be updating the website in the coming weeks to reflect this growth in the project. Watch this space…
Salamanca Arts Centre and ArTELIER kick off 2019 with the exciting announcement of the collaborative project, stART. stART is a program of artist lead encounters connecting children, families, and young people. stART is NOT your average creative holiday workshop where young participants are dropped off and picked up after a couple of hours after getting creative with butchers paper and crayons. stART’s point of difference is that parents/guardians are also included. The stART program has been specifically designed for both children and their parent/s or guardian/s wanting to participate together in Tasmanian artist led experiences.
In 2019 all that we are will run three artist-in-residence seasons – one in the Autumn (April/May) and two in the Spring (October and November). Being an artist in residence gives you complete freedom to make work, relax and reflect on your practice and explore the rich environment of Tasmania. You have your own room, a shared kitchen, bathroom and work/living space (with the option of using a studio) within the private residence at 1450 South Arm Road. You can stay for up to 21 days with costs ranging from $50 – $75 dollars per night self catering.
We cater for individuals, couples and groups and provide a quiet and creative environment with stunning views across the water. It’s a great opportunity to meet other like-minded artists, take time out to reflect and engage with Tasmania artists through our ArTELIER program.
There is no formal application process. Just fill in the form below with when you would like to come with some links to your work, together with an idea of what you intend to do while you are here.
The Summer season of brunches has started at 1450. Each month we host a gathering of friends, neighbours and colleagues for a bring-a-plate Sunday brunch. The season began with live D-Jango-esque music from local musicians Tony, Alan and Diane. If you are in the neighbourhood give us a call to get the 2018/9 summer schedule.
