Temperance hall resident artist program
Choreographers and artists working in performance and interdisciplinary fields of practice may apply to become a Resident Artist at Temperance Hall.
In 2019, two artists will each be awarded a six-month placement at Temperance Hall (Artist 1: Jan - Jun, Artist 2: Jul - Dec). Our Resident Artists receive up to 100 hours of in-kind space, access to our onsite office, and staff mentoring across their allocated six-month period.
Resident Artists can utilise their time developing new or existing ideas, conducting workshops, showings or presentations. Your EOI may propose multiple ideas, with scope for creative development, workshops, showings, collaboration and presentation. Applicants may also wish to propose partnership ideas within their application. We welcome artists and groups at any stage of their career to apply.
In addition to space use, our 2019 Resident Artists will be encouraged to engage with the team at PABL on an ongoing basis and will be offered a space to work within the Temperance Hall offices. We also encourage our Resident Artists to join the company’s Artistic Subcommittee (a branch of the PABL Board).

We're excited to announce our first 2019 Resident Artist, Geoffrey Watson!
Geoffrey Watson is an experimental artist based in Melbourne. His work is rooted in dance but has branches in wearable design, text, music and sculpture. Geoffrey advocates for an advanced state of confundity in the already confusing landscapes of art, desire, performance and the stubborn mindbody.
