MADA Residencies in Melbourne, Australia

Monash Art Design & Architecture (MADA) creative residencies are open to creative practitioners and thinkers from around the world. As a visitor you will be involved in academic life and teaching programs. This is an opportunity to incubate new ideas, undertake research or collaborate with local institutions, industry and communities. In return, we ask participants to acknowledge MADA’s contribution to any creative works associated with the residency and to participate in MADA publicity.

Residents undertake one or more of the following:

  • In-house masterclass/workshop/specific project
  • Contribution to coursework teaching program
  • Contribution to Masters and PhD programs and art forums
  • Public event, e.g., lecture, debate, expression of residency work, on-line interactive workshop

We can accommodate residences in the heart of the faculty on Monash’s Caulfield campus (adjacent to the Monash University Museum of Art) for periods ranging between 2 to 26 weeks. In some cases, we may also be able to provide airfares, materials and other resources. Applications will be judged according to their own merits and contribution to MADA.
