In 2018, the Department of Education, supported by the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), will deliver In residence - a three-day program for Year 10 Queensland visual art students to enrich their art practice in preparation for Senior Visual Art.
Held at QAGOMA, In residence will take place 4-6 December 2018. Throughout the three days, students will engage with The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9) exhibition, artists, QAGOMA and tertiary partners as they participate in creative making and responding workshops. The program will enable participants 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.
This program will provide a centralised opportunity for all Queensland state school students and will replace the previous Creative Generation Excellence Awards regional workshops.
The 2018 program is open to all Year 10 Queensland state and non-state school students. Travel subsidies will be provided for students located outside of the metropolitan area.
To nominate, Year 10 students are required to develop a response to the artwork presented in the In residence featured artwork form (PDF, 448KB) or the In residence featured artwork form (DOCX, 3.2MB) .
The student's response must be authentic and communicate their reaction, interpretation or connection to the artwork through one of the following formats:
- a written work in a genre of your choice (maximum 500 words)
- a video (maximum 1 minute, 300MB)
- visual journal pages (maximum 2 pages in JPEG or TIFF format, 3MB).
Nominations may only be completed by teachers. Students are not eligible to nominate themselves. Teachers must upload their student's response to the nomination website by 5pm Friday 12 October 2018.
