The Artists’ Cottage

For almost a quarter of a century, the Artists’ Cottage
has hosted visiting Artists of all disciplines and their families,
for Residencies and short-term accommodation.

In preparation for the commencement of the Self-Funded Arts Residency Program, from August 2021, the Artists’ Cottage is undergoing extensive renovations to the bathroom / toilet / laundry and kitchen / dining / lounge, as well as reconfiguring the spaces to include a Studio and Office / Writers’ Nook.

The Artists’ Cottage is a completely self-contained 2/3 Bedroom Georgian Cottage (c. 1840) and provides everything you need to work undisturbed during your Residency or be your home base while you explore Salamanca, Hobart and its surrounds. Centrally located in historic Battery Point, and within walking distance to Salamanca Arts Centre, Sullivans Cove and the Hobart CBD. The Cottage has a private backyard (rare for Cottages in this area) with a deck and views of kunanyi / Mount Wellington.


Self-Funded Arts Residency Program

In 2021, Salamanca Arts Centre is excited to launch a new refined Self-Funded Arts Residency Program for the Artists’ Cottage, with the aim of providing a Residency location a little closer to home in a time when International Residencies are not possible.

The Self-Funded Arts Residency Program will consist of a maximum of 12 Residencies per year and is open to artists of all disciplines (including writers, performers, musicians and visual artists) for either solo or collaborative / multi-artist Residencies.

Salamanca Arts Centre is currently seeking applications for inclusion in the Self-Funded Arts Residency Program, from 1 August 2021 – 30 September 2022

Artists may apply for 3 x Residency Length options:

  • OPTION #1 :  3 x Weeks  | $590 per Week | TOTAL $1,770*
