Artsbox Artist-in-Residence Program


Artsbox is a vibrant, intimate and creative converted shipping container based outside the Footscray library. It is a versatile space for emerging, mid-career and professional artists to create new work, test and explore ideas, and further develop their arts practice. The short-term residencies are suited to the development of new work, testing and exploring ideas or the development of your arts practice.

Artists of all genres and mediums are welcome to apply. There is no requirement for you to be a resident of the City of Maribyrnong. Applicants are strongly encouraged to engage with the local community - engagement is really easy and can be as simple as keeping the doors open while you work, chatting to local visitors about your practice, or offering an opportunity for the public to see what you’re developing through a workshop or activity. The Footscray library is also available to utilise for larger engagement activities that may not fit inside the Artsbox space.
