Applications now open for 2020 Grindell’s Hut Artist in Residence

Country Arts SA is inviting artists from all disciplines to apply for a three-week residency at Grindell’s Hut located in the heart of the Vulkathunha – Gammon Ranges National Park, one of the many stunning parks in the Flinders Ranges & Outback region of South Australia.

Established more than 15 years ago, the vision for the residency program is to provide an environment of extraordinary natural beauty with historic significance for artists to pursue their practice while immersed in an outback environment. The park forms part of the traditional country of the Adnyamathanha people and is rich with cultural significance. It is also a haven for many rare and endangered plants and animals.

This opportunity is only open to South Australian residents in 2020 due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Last year’s Grindell’s Hut Artist in Residence, Fran Callen, said “Grindell’s Hut sits within a breathtakingly spectacular part of Adnyamathanha Country. As a mother-artist, a family-friendly residency was important. I’m deeply grateful for this generous and unique opportunity to explore connections between geological and drawing processes, to learn about the arid landscape, and observe its stunning colours. When we were there it hadn’t rained in four years. It was a shocking dead-dry. This thought-provoking experience will influence my practice for a long time.”

The Grindell’s Hut Artist in Residence program is a partnership between Country Arts SA, and The Department for Environment and Water through the Vulkathunha‐Gammon Ranges National Park Co‐Management Board, and managed by Country Arts SA. One artist will be selected to take part in the residency program which will run from 2 – 23 October 2020.
