Shotgun is a Contemporary Art Tasmania artist development program. It is an awarded opportunity that supports selected Tasmanian artists through a customised and intensive program of high-level industry access, critical engagement and new work.
Described as a ‘shot in the arm’ or ‘fast tracking’ for artists, Shotgun sets out to enable development – that may take a number of years for individuals to self-organise – to occur over a short and concentrated period. The unique and flexible program has taken many forms, including: exhibition; mentoring; meetings with visiting industry professionals (artists, curators, producers, writers and gallerists); a residency at home; workshops; discussion events; symposia; interstate visits and commissioned texts.
