NSW-based artists will have the chance to undertake a three-month residency with Animal Logic, thanks to a new initiative supported by Create NSW.

The call out is for experienced artists from a wide spectrum of art forms, with up to three artists to be supported with a grant of $10,000. As well as providing professional opportunities, Animal Logic will host a group exhibition to showcase work created by the artists during their residency.

Visual artist Ben Quilty is the ambassador for the initiative, having worked at Animal Logic early in his career.

“This is an exciting idea which provides an opportunity for the chosen artists to cross-pollinate with screen practitioners in the Animal Logic community to develop their experience, explore new ideas and create new works,” said NSW Minister for the Arts Don Harwin.

Animal Logic’s CEO and co-Founder, Zareh Nalbandian said: “At Animal Logic we are committed to supporting emerging and established creative talent. With this residency program we will provide the opportunity for artists to develop their creative practice and gain experience working in a professional studio on their own projects alongside the team here at Animal Logic,” he said.

As part of his ambassadorship, Quilty will deliver talks to the Animal Logic community during the residencies.

Quilty said: “There are endless possibilities for dynamic collaborations between ambitious artists and the amazing team at Animal Logic. I’m very excited to be involved.”

Applications are open until midnight March 1. Full guidelines can be found here.
