Queen Street Studio is proud to announce that fifteen Sydney-based independent Performing Artists have received a residency in Studio 14, as part of the FraserStudios project in 2011.
Funded by Arts NSW, the successful applicants – made up of both emerging and established solo artists, collectives and several theatre companies – will receive free space and a small weekly stipend to work on a broad range of projects and disciplines including theatre for young people and adults, choreographic research, dance, physical theatre and interdisciplinary work.
A call for proposals for Queen Street Studio’s Performing Arts Residencies was issued late last year and attracted over 58 applications. Fifteen were selected via a peer-assessment process.
Between 2008-2011, Queen Street Studio will have offered a total of 38 Performing Arts Residencies to artists and groups within Sydney. Queen Street Studio’s key agenda is to offer creative development opportunities for Sydney’s independent arts community.
All residencies will take place in Studio 14 of FraserStudios, a multi-disciplinary art space in Chippendale which is owned by Frasers Property and managed by Queen Street Studio.
Queen Street Studio is a non-profit arts organisation which manages Performing and Visual Arts Residencies, professional development programs and subsidised space for hire at FraserStudios in Chippendale and Heffron Hall in Darlinghurst.
