Artist Residencies 2021 applications open soon

The Dance Hub offers a Residency program that contributes to and promotes art form development, and in turn connects the community.

The Dance Hub residency program is designed for dance artists to work in the studio from 3 days – 3 weeks as available in a calendar year. It provides the opportunity to develop an idea, test or create. It’s just that – dedicated studio time.

You must be a member of Dance Hub SA to apply for a residency. Read about the many benefits of membership here

Assessment Criteria:

Applications are assessed by a national panel against the criteria of artistic excellence and artform development.
Please frame your responses accordingly

Artistic Excellence

  • innovation, originality, quality, creativity and ambition
  • the context in which the work is being undertaken
  • the track record, creative achievement and skill of the artist or artists involved
  • evidence of experimentation, risk taking and bravery

Artform Development

  • the potential contribution to the development of the art form
  • the potential to enhance the skills and/or professional reputation of the applicant
  • the capacity to forge new pathways for artist and sector development
  • the capacity to develop new networks, collaborations and partnerships

The Artist in Residence is supported in the following ways:


Studio space (free of charge) approx 12 x17m with lots of natural light, air conditioned, sound system and of course a sprung floor.


Support with marketing and promotion through all Dance Hub channels, promotion on our website, access to a Hot desk, wifi and networking opportunities.

The duration of the residency is shaped and agreed upon based on the conversation with the Artist and your desired outcomes. The Dance Hub facilitates and supports the process and allows the Artist to lead the Residency as they need.

The framework of the residency is created and led by the applicant. Artists in Residence of more than 3 days will be asked to give back to the community through various activities such as a public showing, an open studio, live streaming, a Q&A, or an extension of these ideas.

In addition we aim to assist each resident with documentation support or an allowance to offset direct costs of the residency. These are negotiated on project by project basis
