Orange House by the Sea Artist Residency (Expired)

The Orange House by the Sea Artist residency program is for mid-career women and non-binary artists who are working at the intersections of performance, sound and music.

Chamber Made is now calling for applications for the 2019 residency to take place between Monday 6 May and Sunday 26 May 2019.


  • 2-3 weeks accommodation at The Orange House by the Sea (duration to be decided in consultation between the recipient and Chamber Made)
  • $3,000 artist fee (an additional contribution towards child care is available if required)
  • Access to a Melbourne-based industry mentor

The residency is open to mid-career women and non-binary* artists (10+ years practice in their artform) who are making, researching or developing work located at the intersection of performance, sound and music.


  • Demonstrated experience of over 10 years in performing arts practice
  • Established engagement with cross-artform practice – particularly working across the areas of performance/theatre, sound art and art music.
  • Clear articulation of the focus of the residency period (whether project focused or otherwise)
  • Potential impact of the residency on the applicant’s artistic practice

There is no public outcome associated with the residency. You will be required to submit a report of progress / findings with Chamber Made.

Located on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria, the Orange House by the Sea is the beautiful home of the late artist Margaret Cameron.

Margaret worked closely with Chamber Made during her life. She was a singular and extraordinary artist who made works for performance. It was her wish that after her death her home be used as an artist-in-residence program. We are so pleased to be able to carry the torch of Margaret’s generosity – and that of her family – in curating and managing this residency. The pilot program for this residency is generously supported by the Hugh Williamson Foundation and by the family of Margaret Cameron.

*NOTE: This project is a ‘Special Measure’ under Section 12 of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 – meaning it can direct its focus towards women only. It is also open to artists who identify as non-binary in their gender identification.

Current staff and board members of Chamber Made are not eligible to apply.

Applicants are required to be Australian residents.
