The B–CSC’s residency program encourages dialogue, exchange and experimentation. It provides artists with an opportunity to consider and respond to Victoria’s alpine environment and its attendant complexities including the tension between conservation and exploitation.

A key aim of the residency, is to provide cultural opportunities to the Alpine Shire community, through public programs implemented by Australian and International artists while residing at the B–CSC. It is expected that residential artists will engage with the community creatively on at least one occasion. This could be an artist talk, workshop or some other means.

Residential artist are selected by the quality of their proposal and how it fits with the values and capabilities of the B–CSC.

Artists undertaking the residency are expected to arrive with a motivated, self-driven practice. Because of our small size and remote village location, artists must be excited by living in a temporary community of as few as two people, including staff.

The residency is situated in Bogong Village within close proximity to the picturesque Lake Guy. Established in 1940 with European gardens it is surrounded on all sides by Australian forest rich in native birdlife.
