Botanic Gardens Trust, Sydney, Australia

Artist in Residence program

'The Gardens has remained a potent source of inspiration for artists and writers since the inception of the colony; and is a setting for the display of public art'. NSW Heritage Act 1977

In keeping with the ongoing use of the Garden by artists since European settlement and before, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust offers an annual Artist in Residence Program which allows artists to work in and be inspired by the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and its collections. The program is offered to a practicing artist who has a demonstrated history of producing work of a high standard for exhibition and whose residency will contribute to the Trust’s programs.
