New Artist Residency Program in 2021

For the first time in 2021, we are excited to offer two $15,000 residencies to support independent artists from across the Northern Rivers in the creation, research and development of new work.

By providing two funded residencies, we aim to provide supported development opportunities that enable artists to create work that animates place, speaks to our region and shares its stories. We are looking for projects that share NORPA’s passion for new, bold and ambitious works, that play with form and challenge conventions of theatre.

We welcome applications from across the Northern Rivers region and encourage projects that demonstrate partnerships or support from other arts organisations, community organisations or venues. NORPA believes in work that is connected to our place and its people, taking inspiration from the country and community around us.

Each residency will be provided with up to $15,000 in cash, and in-kind production and venue support should successful applicants wish to work in Lismore City Hall.
