Bunbury Summer School will run for it’s 10th year in 2023. Bunbury Summer School connects community to creativity through a series of workshops, events and activities run over one week in January 2023 at the Stirling Street Arts Centre and other venues and open spaces across Bunbury.

Stirling Street Arts Centre has an exciting opportunity for an artist to attend our 2023 Act Belong Commit Summer School Artist in Residence program.

The successful applicant will be given the opportunity to attend 3 Bunbury Summer School Workshops at no cost, have access to Stirling Street Arts Centre amenities, work from their own private studio (24hr access) at SSAC from January – March 2023 and collaborate with SSAC members & groups over the course of the residency.

The artist will be expected to work in the studio for a minimum of 5 days over the Summer School period (7th – 15th January 2023) with preference given to artists able to be at the Centre for the majority of the Summer School period. After Summer School the artist will continue working in the studio through to March, implementing the skills and techniques learned from Summer School workshops & SSAC members.

The selected artist will be expected to promote Stirling Street Arts Centre and the Act Belong Commit message via social media (where possible) over the course of the residency.
