2021 applications (for a 2022 residency) are due by 11:59pm AEST 17 November 2021.

This category of residency is restricted to Australian National University (ANU) ceramics graduates. It is an award presented annually by Canberra Potters’ Society as part of the ANU’s Emerging Artist Support Scheme (EASS) and is generally for a two-month residency. Students graduating in 2021 who would like to apply for the 2022 EASS residency should do so by 17 November 2021. The successful applicant will be announced simultaneously with the CPS EASS exhibition awards in late November/early December.

Applicants will need to include a letter of support from a tutor or supervisor confirming that the applicant is able to work safely and independently.

EASS residents receive:

  • A studio and access to the society’s kilns and equipment;
  • Accommodation in the adjacent residential unit, if required.

EASS residents are required to:

  • Pay for all their materials and firings;
  • Give a presentation/slide show about their work and practice;
  • Donate one piece of work to the society’s artist-in-residence collection.

EASS Application Process

Applications should be submitted on the residency application form and should include an outline of what you want to do creatively and technically, what you hope to get out of the residency, a current CV, up to eight images of recent work or work relating to your proposal and a letter of support from a tutor or supervisor confirming your ability to work safely and independently.

Applications must be received no later than the deadline.

Selection will be made by considering the merits of each application for the EASS residency in a particular year and may include seeking advice from teaching staff at the ANU School of Art Ceramics Workshop.
