The Artist in Residence (AIR) Program for 2012 is now open, with the closing date of 30 March 2012.
Here’s a link to the 2012 Artist in Residence information on the Arts Qld website http://www.arts.qld.gov.au/policy/artists-residence.html
Arts Queensland, in partnership with the Australia Council for the Arts and Education Queensland, provides an AIR Program that recognises good practice and encourages innovation in arts and education programs in Queensland.
The AIR Program gives artists an opportunity to broaden their experience and share their skills, while providing school students, teachers and pre-service teachers with greater exposure to the benefits of creative practice.
It creates opportunities for artists, teachers and pre-service teachers to work together on developing effective teaching methods and practices for the arts.
The Program provides funding of up to $20 000 for projects that create opportunities for artists and teachers to work together on developing effective teaching methods and practices for the arts.
The program is open to Queensland schools or clusters and must take place in Queensland school in collaboration with a recognised, professional artist.
