A place charged with inspiration

Open to professional creatives from all disciplines, individually or in groups. Residents are hosted in purpose-built studios.

Bundanon supports new work, research and collaborations by artists and researchers from around the world.  The program is structured through a series of partnerships with leading arts organisations and companies, cultural agencies and benefactors.

Applications for the 2022 Artist in Residence program close 31 May 2021.


Bundanon offers accommodation as well as studio and rehearsal space for up to 10 people in single and shared apartments and self-contained cottages. 

Larger groups are accommodated at the Boyd Education Centre (accommodating 32 people with hall space) and The Bridge (accommodating 64 people with workshop/dining space). The larger multi-use spaces, located near the Art Museum, include accommodation without individual studios.

Many of the studios in the Artist in Residence Complex were created through gifts from generous supporters and benefactors and are named for donors. These include the Sherman, Gonski, Freedman, and Fern apartments. 

The Dorothy Dwyer Silversmiths’ Studio was created through a bequest from artists Stephanie and Mikala Dwyer to honour their mother, the acclaimed silversmith Dorothy Dwyer. Bundanon is grateful for the generosity of Mikala and Stephanie Dwyer and the professional advice of Valerie Odewahn. 


Bundanon acknowledges the Wodi Wodi and the Yuin, of the South Coast region, and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.

In Dharawal the word Bundanon means deep valley.
