General information

Brief description of residency program

Gallery Sobrane is excited to begin offering residencies in their new gallery space in Broome, Western Australia. Beginning in early 2018, Gallery Sobrane now invites all visual artists, filmmakers, writers and musicians to come and bask in the natural beauty of the gallery’s surrounds, while being inspired by the charismatic and historic site that is “Captain Gregory’s”. Broome is known as Australia´s tropical paradise.

´48 By The Bay´ is located in the historic heart of Broome in the glorious Captain Gregory´s Cottage which is over 100 years old, the residency sits aside the vibrant turquoise Roebuck Bay and is a stone’s throw to the shopping precinct of China Town and all of Broome´s cultural heritage.

Successful residents will be provided with accommodation, exclusive studio space, exhibition space, a discount at the local artists suppliers and access to full time gallery staff.

This is a truly unique and unpassable opportunity for any artist wishing to explore and expand their creative repertoire.
