    — artist residencies at Canberra Contemporary Art Space, in partnership with the ANU School of Art;

    — an opportunity for an Australian Indigenous artist and a visiting international artist to undertake residencies at Gudgenby Cottage in the Namadgi National Park, hosted by CraftACT in partnership with the ACT Parks and Conservation Service;

    — a Creative Fellowships Program at UNSW Canberra, in conjunction with the ACT Writers Centre, hosting three creative writers;

    — the Young Music Society to bring international musicians to engage with Canberra musicians and students;

    — Basketry ACT to bring an international textile artist to live and work in Canberra; and

    — a residency hosted by the Multicultural Women’s Advocacy Group in partnership with the Community Cultural Inclusion Officers, bringing inspiring community arts projects.
