Amor Residency

The State Library Victoria, in partnership with the Baldessin Press, offers a special residency opportunity as part of the annual fellowship program. The Amor Residency at Baldessin Press Studio is offered to a visual artist wishing to explore the medium of printmaking, using research material from the State Library to inform their practice.

The Amor Residency at Baldessin Press Studio may take place at any time within the year of the award, according to the recipient’s project and research plans. The offer may include accommodation onsite at the Press, printmaking tuition or technical support, materials or editioning to the sum of $5000. The recipient also receives a State Library mentor and space with Library for their research throughout the year.

We encourage applicants who wish to further their printmaking practice, or artists wishing to explore the medium for the first time. Strong visual support material is also highly recommended for any application.

Applications close on Sunday 23 April 2017.
