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 will be held from 3 – 5 December 2019 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 will engage with exhibitions at the Gallery of Modern Art, artists, QAGOMA and tertiary partners as they participate in creative making and responding workshops.
In residence 2019 is open to all current Year 10 Queensland state and non-state school students who are enrolled to study Senior Visual Art in 2020. Accommodation will be offered for all students, and travel will be provided for students located outside of the Metropolitan/South East Queensland area.
