CAT is home to four fully-supported studios for artists based in Lutruwita/Tasmania. The Studio Residency opportunity gives artists the space to experiment with their practice and grow their professional careers. In 2021 CAT relaunched the Studio Residencies with a new model, integrating studio practice with other CAT programs. 


CAT now offers:

  • A dedicated studio space to support a Tasmanian-based artist realise a new exhibition in CAT’s exhibition program. Determined by the CAT Program Committee, this space will be available for two years to enable in-depth development
  • A one-year space to the successful Curatorial Mentorship applicant
  • Two spaces available by application on an annual basis 


CAT Studio Residents also receive access to the CAT project space for presentation of new work or work in progress; profile and development opportunities through CAT’s public and digital programs; engaged feedback with visiting professionals.



Applications for 2023 studios are now open

There are two studio spaces available via this call out. Both are fully supported studio space (no rent or utility bills required) and include 24 hour access and wifi. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, abilities and identities.

Applications due: midnight Wednesday 19 October 2022.
