AIR Program

IASKA offers artists the opportunity to live and work in the unique environment of rural Australia and participate in our innovative artistic program. Residencies are aimed at researching and developing new work through an engagement with the local social and environmental context. As a rule, residencies run for a minimum of 4 weeks but shorter stays are negotiable. Artists may create an exhibition, performance or media presentation to be opened/premiered at end of their stay.

Participants are provided with accommodation, exhibition space, wireless broadband Internet, on-site staff support and production equipment comprising installation and fabrication tools, 10 tv monitors, 10 dvd players, 5 video projectors, 3ccd digital camcorder, professional digital SLR camera, tripods, video editing work stations, plinths, video-projection booth and projection screens. Additional equipment and technical support can be accessed through our local community contacts.

We offer three types of residencies:

Partially subsidised residencies

Participating artists are charged $100 per week for the smaller gallery flat and $150 for the larger adjacent town house.

Fully subsidised residencies

Artists are not charged. A production and materials allowance may be offered to artists who commit to developing an exhibition, performance or media presentation to be opened/premiered at IASKA.


Artists are offered a $1,500 artist's fee, a living allowance of $1,000 per month (or pro rata) and $1,500 contribution towards materials and production costs. Please note the number of fellowships offered vary from year to year depending on available funding.

Partnerships, exchanges and special projects

In addition to its AIR program in Kellerberrin, IASKA organises larger curated projects and events that are based on partnership arrangements with like-minded organisations in Australia and abroad. We welcome proposals from potential partners that may be interested in working with us to develop joint national/international projects.
