Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art's
In residence program is a Department of Education program, supported by the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA).
In residence is held annually for three days through December at QAGOMA, providing Year 10 Queensland visual art students with the opportunity to strengthen their understanding of the academic, experimental, collaborative and reflective nature of contemporary visual art and gain an appreciation for the breadth of opportunities in the creative industries.
Throughout the three days, students engage with exhibitions at QAGOMA, artists and tertiary partners as they participate in creative making and responding workshops.
In residence is open to all current Year 10 Queensland state and non-state school students who are or will be enrolled to study senior visual art in 2022. Accommodation will be offered for all students and travel will be provided for students located outside of the Metropolitan/South East Queensland area.
In residence 2021 will be held virtually 30 November to 2 December 2021. Nominations for the 2021 program are open from 6 September to 8 October 2021.
