Over the first three years of all that we are, we hosted artists from across the world, who universally agree that there is a special and creative energy around this house and land, Mumarimina land, that makes it an ideal base for residencies, retreats and reflection.
My sincere thanks to Simon and Victoria who were so welcoming and got the balance just right between allowing me lots of space and time to contemplate and create, and check-ins and chats to ensure I didn’t start talking to the wombats! Tasmania is just beautiful too – lovely weather, clean air, space, friendly.. It has it all. I felt immediately at peace and at rest.

Hobart is a 25 minute drive away or accessible by bus
MONA is 40 minutes away or drive to Hobart and take the ferry.
Numerous beaches are within a 5 to 10 minutes drive or a 10 minute walk to the lagoon.
These residencies are open to any committed artist, but all that we are has a special interest in artists whose practice is inclusive of children, families, young people and the diverse ecologies of communities.
It is seriously a beautiful place. Surrounded by forest and endless vistas of sea, sky and stunning landscape… Victoria and Simon offered the perfect balance of allowing me my space and privacy while also offering support and their warm hospitality.”

In 2020 all that we are will run three artist-in-residence seasons – one in the Summer (Jan/Feb), one in the Autumn (April/May) and one in the Spring (October and November). 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.
