PLAN YOUR VISIT - See the return of Arthur Boyd's Shoalhaven landscape paintings with new exhibition Wilder Times (6 July - 13 October 2024)


The Artists in Residence program is a pillar of Bundanon, an organisation created to support creativity and learning in a unique cultural and natural landscape.  

A place for the community to enjoy the bush and the river, and a place to be used as a forum where those from every facet from the arts and sciences could get together.  Arthur Boyd  

This competitive residency program is made possible by the generous contribution of Arthur and Yvonne Boyd to the Australian public. Established in 1997, it has grown to become the largest program of its kind in Australia, hosting over 250 artists annually. Artists, groups, and organisations from around the globe and across all creative disciplines are encouraged to apply. 

Structured through partnerships with leading arts organisations, companies, cultural agencies, and patrons, the program facilitates creative exploration and offers participants an expansive environment to develop their artistic practice and engage with fellow creative minds.


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

    Many of the studios in the Artists 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. 

    Several Fellowships & Awards have also been established to provide opportunities for artists across various disciplines.
