Artist Residents

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic the Monster Mouse artist residency is now a digital residency:

  • Work from home
  • Option of working from the studio if able to do so safely
  • Regular video chats for feedback and support
  • We’ll promote your work on our Instagram and Facebook
  • Online exhibition at the end of the residency
  • Option of live exhibition at Monster Mouse in future (when pandemic is over)

The deadline for the first round of applications is Friday April 17. For more information email


The Monster Mouse artists residency is a month to month program. We offer FREE studio and exhibition space to all successful applicants.

The residency aims to nurture emerging artists in any medium, and to give artists the resources to explore the power of art to effect positive social change.

The residency is for:

Artists from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, disabled artists, LGBT artists, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists


Artists whose work addresses social and political issues

We encourage resident artists to produce work that is in itself a form of political action. Examples include:

  • producing a zine and distributing copies of it in community centres, libraries, workplaces, and universities
  • designing a series of posters and pasting them in public spaces
  • creating a piece of street theater and performing it in public
  • holding a reading or performance in a public space
  • producing a film or video installation that can be screened publicly
  • projects related to political protest and public action
