Our Old Distillery studio is open to artists-in-residence.

Residencies can cover the creation of new works, research, or developing your practice. Particular outcomes are not required, however we encourage residents to make the most of their time here. 

Proposals are open year round, and assessed in relation to Art Farm’s other programming and studio availability.

In the past, the residency studio has been used as a studio, pop-up shop, exhibition venue, screening space, workshop, and event space. We welcome artists from any discipline or career stage to apply.

Art Farm provides marketing, producing, and curatorial support for any public events associated with your residency.

Art Farm Birchs Bay is based in lutruwita (Tasmania), approx 35min south of nipaluna (Hobart) and 10 minutes south of putalina (Oyster Cove).  

We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the palawa people, and pay deep respect to elders past and present, and to the many Aboriginal people that did not make elder status and to the Tasmanian Aboriginal community that continue to care for Country.
