Level up opens arts residency program for Gold Coast artists

Applications are now open for young emerging artists to join the City of Gold Coast’s Level Up Residency Program in 2020.

The Level Up arts residency is a three-month mentoring program designed to support young visual artists to create new works and build a sustainable artist practice.

The residency includes shared studio space and artist stipend, along with access to experienced artists and creative industry experience.

The residency is located at the Level Up studio + gallery at The Strand at Coolangatta, providing young visual artists with opportunities to connect with the local community through the Level Up studio + gallery, public programming, events and workshops.

“This is a great opportunity for young artists aged between 18 to 25 years living on the Gold Coast to take their arts practice to the next level,” said The Strand’s Marketing Manager, Megan White.

“Our beachside centre is the perfect location to provide an inspiring space for local artists and also bring the community together around the arts with free events, exhibitions and workshops held throughout the year.”

Applications close at 5 pm on Friday 14 February 2020.
