YoungArts Artists Register
The Gallery runs regular After School and School Holiday
Programs for which artists are engaged under short term
contracts.Occasionally the Gallery will also engage artists to work
with school students during school visits.
The Art Gallery of Ballarat maintains a register of artists who
are interested in working with primary and secondary school age
students for the Gallery's YoungArts program. Artists in a range of
disciplines including both visual and performing arts living or
working within the Ballarat region are invited to lodge submissions
to be included on the register.
To apply, artists need to demonstrate interest and any
experience in working with school students within your field of
artistic practice, have an ABN and have or be prepared to gain
Working With Children Clearance. You need to submit an Expression
of Interest consisting of a one A4 page statement outlining your
skills, experience or expertise, a one A4 page summary of examples
of creative projects that you might develop to work with students
at the Gallery, up to 8 examples in relevant media of your work and
a CV, including two professional referees.
Ideally artists should give examples of a single one-hour
workshop, a single two-hour workshop and a workshop series of 10
Being placed on the YoungArts Register does not guarantee that
you will be engaged to work with students at the Gallery but it
ensures that the Gallery has your details and a summary of your
arts practice when selecting artists who will be contracted.
