Open call residencies
InPlace operates an annual international call for proposals. We invite artists, researchers and organisations, with an ambitious project requiring sustained development time, to apply for a Garambi Baan/Laughing Waters residency. The residency duration can be anything up to 60 days. InPlace is open to split residencies if they are of benefit to the applicant, as well as fostering a philosophy of return and commitment to this place.
InPlace operates an annual commissioning stream where we work with artists, researchers and various groups to develop and produce major projects. We offer support in securing funding, brokering partnerships, creatively producing projects, and facilitating consultations, all coupled with live-in residencies.
Through our partnerships InPlace targets specific groups and disciplines for residencies. These opportunities change annually and will be delivered with different partners each year, drawn from our suite of existing partners. Please check back in or sign up for news and opportunities.
We aim to keep the program flexible and responsive to the needs of the sector. InPlace will offer quick response residencies through an open call nationally, for projects requiring short to medium length residencies with little notice.
Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung
InPlace formed a partnership with the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung in 2018 for dual use of the new residency centre. This partnership seeks to foreground Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung cultural values and ongoing connection to Country at Garambi Baan. A priority access stream exists to afford the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation and Wurundjeri community access to the centre in a flexible and responsive way.
