    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 Baanj Cultural Precinct 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.


    Commissioning Stream

    InPlace operates an annual commissioning stream which sees us 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.


    Industry Partners

    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.


    Quick response

    We aim to keep the program flexible and responsive to the needs of the sector and communities. 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 this new cultural precinct. This partnership seeks to foreground Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung cultural values and ongoing connection to Country at Garambi Baanj. 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.
