The Australia Council for the Arts has published fact sheets about research into artists residencies in 2014-15. We did qualitative interviews and focus group discussions whilst the Australia Council implemented a survey of artists who had participated in residencies.
Fact sheets are available about the motivations and benefits to artists, the ingredients of a successful residency, the location of residencies and the support needed by artists on a residency.
The research is most useful for residency providers, grant makers and artists deciding about whether to take up a residency opportunity.
