Amani Tia & Patrick Francis Attend Bundoora Nebula Residency

Due to their incredible practice and achievements in contemporary art, both Amani Tia and Patrick Francis have been chosen to attend a month-long Bundoora Nebula Residency.

The Bundoora Nebula Residency Program supports artists in developing a new artistic work in a portable studio, which is placed among Bundoora Homestead Art Centre’s heritage garden. The residency is a rare and coveted opportunity and provides Tia and Francis a unique environment to practice their painting and hone their craft.

The residency works by pairing two artists for the month, with one of these artists having a disability. Through a collaborative effort and a change in scenery, Tia and Patrick will be exposed to, and inspired by, new creative processes and a new creative environment.

If you’d like to head along the residency spaces are open to the general public and you can watch Tia and Patrick’s work in progress.

Patrick’s residency has recently started and he’ll be at Bundoora Nebula during select days in March and is collaborating with artist Sandra Long. Not to mention on 30 March 2017 Patrick and Long will showcase their work through a Celebration and Demonstration event.

Tia is collaborating with artist Claire Mooney and will be at Bundoora Nebula on Thursdays and Fridays during April.

A big congratulations to Amani Tia and Patrick Francis!

The Bundoora Nebula Residency is a partnership between Bundoora Homestead Art Centre and Arts Access Victoria.
