As part of Manly Arts Festival, Northern Beaches Council is giving local artists a chance to accelerate their careers and expand their creative networks.

Council General Manager Planning, Place and Community David Kerr said the FREE Saturday 9 September event, which is being held at Eramboo Artist Environment, is a chance for local artists to learn how to apply for – and win – artist residencies.

“Residency programs are a wonderful opportunity for artists to create new works in an inspiring, collaborative and supportive environment,” Mr Kerr said.

Bookings are essential by Thursday 31 August. Visit northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au. Those who attend the event are welcome to stay afterwards for an Eramboo exhibition opening.

Submissions for local artist residency programs including those offered by Eramboo / Northern Beaches Council; and Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre will open later this year.
