Brief description of residency program

A self-directed program, the Dreamfarm Creative Residency is a time for research, experimentation, development, growth and the production of new work. The Residency Program is open to emerging and established practitioners, both Australian and international, working with any creative medium or project. This program is also suitable for collaborative group residencies.

Dreamfarm will provide accommodation, work space, an inspiring environment and full catering.
All creative projects are considered, and we encourage work that explores a connection between creativity and the natural environment, or which drives positive social change.
