We’re very excited to welcome a second cohort of artists and creative practitioners into our creative live work space program. The talented people below will enjoy a 12 month tenancy to a residential/studio space in an enviable William Street location.
Kate Scardifield, Visual Arts
Kate is a visual artist with a practice including sculpture, installation, textiles and painting. During the residency Kate aims to expand on the theatrical and performance elements of her work through video and sound.
Elizabeth Gadsby, Production Designer/ Performance
Elizabeth is a production designer for live performance. During the residency Elizabeth will undertake a number of projects with organisations, including Pinchgut Opera, Bell Shakespeare Company and Vivid.
Seizure is an online publishing and promotions platform that supports reading and authorship in Australia. Seizure is run by co-founders Alice Grundy and David Henley, along with eight volunteers. During the residency, the space will be used for writing, editorial and production of Seizure and the team will produce events and workshops in other locations, including with the City’s Library Network.
365 Docobites, Film
Epiphany Morgan and Carl Mason are a documentary filmmaking duo who produce an online documentary series called 365 Docobites (bite-sized documentaries). Following the completion of the 365 Docobites series, the residency will focus on creating an online space.
Angela Garrick, Musician
Angela is a multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on music and film. During her residency Angela will focus on a collaborative project for women in film to be presented at the Underbelly Arts Festival on Cockatoo Island and working on an album of music for Hozac Records and RIP Society Records.

Following a call-out last November, we received 32 excellent applications covering a range of disciplines, including visual and interdisciplinary arts, writing, curation, theatre, fashion, textiles, film, music, industrial design and a scent artist. The application and selection process is managed by Gaffa.
An expert panel assessed the applicants’ creative practice and the artistic merit of their work; viability and outcomes of the proposed projects to be undertaken during the residency; potential for collaboration and community impacts; potential for the opportunity to positively impact the applicant’s creative growth; and the overall benefit to the vibrancy of the City’s creative communities.
