Deadline extended for Subsidized Studio applications!

We’re still taking applications for VANS subsidized studio space in Sydney.

Subsidized Studio Program in Sydney!

Do you need to rent a studio this spring? We have extended the deadline for Subsidized Studio applications from members for our space in downtown Sydney! VANS Member artists can apply to rent studio space for 2 – 3 months from April 1, 2019 – November 31, 2019. Not a VANS member already? No problem – you can join online at the time of application.

It’s an opportunity for an artist who may be new to working in an independent studio or an artist who has a specific project to work on and could use support to fund a short-term studio space. Maybe you have an exhibition or festival coming up, or you just need somewhere to make art – other than your living room. Whatever the reason, the Subsidized Studio could work for you!

Location: 3rd floor of the New Dawn Centre for Social Innovation, 37 Nepean Street, Sydney, NS

Description: the studio is 7′ x 10′ with partial dividers

Access: 24/7 access to the building with the use of a key fob for exterior doors and your own key for the studio space. In addition to studio space, artists have access to a designated sink and space for cleanup, locker storage space outside of the studio, as well as a shared lounge/kitchenette. Unfortunately, the studio space is only accessible by stairs.

Cost to you: $50/month + key deposit (deposit will be returned at the end of the rental).

Deadline for applications: extended to Wednesday, March 27!
