(our) Opportunities

The Centre for Projection Art's Artist-In-Residence program provides selected artists with resources and support to explore projection in their contemporary art practice.

A mentor is paired with the artist for the duration of the program, and they are encouraged to explore, experiment and work responsively to grow their concepts in new directions. 

Centre for Projection Art, 2024 Artist-In-Residence Program
is now closed.

CPA Residency supports emerging contemporary visual artists working in the digital new media spaces who are excited by and want to further explore and develop the use of projections through their art practice.  


Participants work in a self-directed way and have regular meetings with their mentor. Facilitated group conversations can be online or with the option to have onsite access to our studio at the Collingwood yards. These meetings can encourage experimentation, workshop existing or emerging ideas, or look at particular work sites. It's a chance to share knowledge, skills and create outcomes that incorporates projections into their practice.

Centre for Projection Art will provide professional development opportunities throughout this residency program led by the needs of the selected artistic practices. The artists will receive an honorarium of $1000 to participate in this residency.

We work with you to showcase the outcomes of your work in public spaces and in other contexts that suit your ideas and practice, led by you. These works may also be curated and programmed into Centre for Projection Art exhibitions, events and festivals (subject to additional funding and agreement). The Centre for Projection Art prides itself on developing ongoing relationships with all our artists.

For the 2024 residency (April - December 2024), we invite artists specifically addressing ecological awareness and climate change urgencies in their studio practices.

The artworks will be part of the Gertrude Street Projection Festival

The residency will continue beyond the festival as an opportunity for the artists to evaluate and learn from their exhibited works..

Centre for Projection Art, Masterclass in Projection Art 
EOI is currently closed.

Sign up to our mailing list and follow us on social media to stay up to date about future EOIs.

This program shows contemporary artists how their projects and practice can benefit from projections and create a space to test and experiment ideas with new media. The focus is to embed projections into their existing practice, for both gallery and Public Art contexts. By the end of the Masterclass, each participant will have a deeper understanding of the medium and a facilitated space to create a proposal for a site-specific projection-based artwork that can be used in the future.

Centre for Projection Art's Masterclass in Projection Art has been generously supported by the City of MelbourneThe Meat MarketEPSON, and Lupa.
