Whites Creek Cottage
The Whites Creek Cottage Subsidised Studio Program is a 12 month residency offering two studio spaces in the Whites Creek Cottage at a low cost.
The White’s Creek Cottage Subsidised Studio Space Program (SSSP) indicates the Inner West Council’s recognition of the challenges facing arts practitioners in finding affordable and local spaces in which to work.
Ideally artists should have access to affordable spaces where they live and work, and The White’s Creek Cottage SSP adds to the suite of Artist in Residence + SSSP opportunities that the Council provides.
This space is designated for visual artists and/ or craftspeople who have a focus on sustainability in their practice. This may either be via the theoretical content of their work, or by the materials they use.
The cottage is located within the White’s Creek Valley Park corridor, next door to a community garden, and metres from a newly established community orchard. It is also the location of the annual Footprints Ecofestival.
The current Artists in Residence are Gilbert Grace and Amaya Lang. They were awarded their residencies in October 2018.
