We are currently accepting applications for our 2021 sponsored studio.
Thanks to our generous patron Peter Day, we are so pleased to be able to offer one artist a free studio for a whole year! It can be tough being an artist and even more so during 2020. This makes it doubly exciting!
Sandbox's mission is to provide affordable studio space, where there is a supportive group of likeminded people.
To regularly host interstate and international artists as caretakers and contributors to the Sandbox social culture.
To encourage relationships between patrons and artists, and cultivating an ideal platform for patrons and art lovers to contribute directly to an artist's day to day practice.
About the studio
The fully lockable studio is 4m x 4m and open 7 days. You will be sharing the factory space with two other artists.
We hold monthly exhibitions with openings, weekly life drawing sessions, artist talks and two open studio weekends each year. The studios are 5-10 minutes walk from Brunswick Train Station and there is secure parking for your bicycle and off street parking
Just next door is a Brunswick Burrittos, Negative Press and our local - Foreigner Brewing.
To be eligible you must:
Be a professional artist with university qualifications
Have held regular solo exhibitions over the last few years
Live in Melbourne
Get your application in by Fri 27th of Nov
In return for the studio we ask that you offer our generous patron a work or two during the year and tag the studios in your social media posts. That's it! You can participate in our social life at the studio as much or as little as you like.
If you are interested in the studio please fill out the form on this page.
The decision will be made by early December.
The successful applicant will be notified by email and the result will be posted on our website and social media.
Note: The final decision on the recipient of the studio is made by the board members at Sandbox. Further correspondence will not be entered into.
