MEGALO RESIDENCY PROGRAM


The Megalo Print Studio + Gallery Artist in Residence Program is a supported residency opportunity open to Australian and International artists at all stages of their careers.  Each year we offer five places for Australian artists and one International place. The selected artists receive a stipend, accommodation (international and interstate based artists) and studio access to Megalo’s comprehensive, professional printmaking facilities.

The residency program aims to support the making of new work that meets the program objectives of excellence and innovation in printmaking. Participating artists contribute a representative piece of work produced during the residency to the Megalo archive. The archive collection is used for the purposes of exhibition and scholarly research.

It was extremely rewarding that my practice has brought me across the world and allowed me to work in a facility among such a great community of printmakers, members and staff.

The highlights have been; time in the studio to develop the ideas and print the work, the hospitality of Canberra locals and the wonderful cycling infrastructure that we can only dream of in Sydney!
— Pia Larsen, National AIR 2019
The people, materials and ideas are all unique to Megalo and that is down to your open approach to printmaking, welcoming people like me into the studio and your genuine love of the medium.
— Merryn Lloyd, National AIR 2018
The residency was such a great time to produce work and meet new people. I am hoping all of our paths will cross again. I have a lot of respect for what you all do.
— Arone Meeks, National AIR, 2017

I really thought the space, the equipment and perhaps mostly the attitude Megalo was run with is really special.
— Angus Fisher, MEGA resident, National Art School 2018
It (the residency) gave me the confidence and ability to keep making, The staff and facilities are second to none.
