Fremantle Arts Centre

61 (+8) 9432 9555

Fremantle Arts Centre hosts a residency program which provides opportunities for artists to work on short to mid-term projects, connect with the local, national and international art community and potentially feed into broader exhibition programs, events and learning opportunities. We endeavour to foster rich and diverse experiences for contributing artists.

There are eleven studios on the Fremantle Art Centre grounds varied in size and suitability for different artistic activities. There is one residential apartment in Fremantle??s historic West End.

Applications for residencies that require the use of the residential apartment will be accepted during the month of September 2017 for residencies taking place after September 2018. Residencies not requiring the use of the residential apartment will be accepted at any time.
