Mind The Gap residency


The Mind The Gap Residency is a new initiative between the Dance Hub and Tasmania's award winning dance company, Tasdance.

In 2018 the Residency will provide a SA-based artist the opportunity to create, research, build upon and stretch their creative parameters during a week of dedicated creativity and focus in Launceston – home to Tasdance. In 2019 we are working towards a reciprocal Residency for Tasmanian practitioners to come to South Australia. There is an expectation that the successful artist will present a showing at the end of the residency.

Two one-week residencies will be awarded in 2018.

The weeks of the 2018 Residencies are:
1) Aug 5 -11 2018
2) Sept 23-29

Successful applicants will be notified by  mid May 2018.

The Artist in Residence is supported in the following ways:

  • one Adelaide - Launceston economy return flight
  • free access to the Tasdance Studio (14m x 12m sprung floor with tarkett), sound system, heating & cooling, access to a screen and projector *
  • free accommodation in the one bedroom Tasdance Cottage. There is a kitchen and bathroom adjacent to the bedroom which has one double bed.  There is also a sofa bed that can be made up, though please note both the double bed and sofa bed are in the same room.
  • $1,000 stipend
