Previous Artist Support Programs

Artist Residencies

The Bath St Residencies support artists by providing them with time, space, resources and funds to experiment, investigate and create work in a non-outcome imperative environment. In 2021, Red Hot Arts hosted six Artists in Residence. Watch this space for any future opportunities.

Remote Mentoring

The Remote Mentoring Program is a professional development initiative that lifts the geographical barrier of working remotely by providing access to leading companies and independent artists via room scale video conferencing equipment. In 2018/19, 12 local artists accessed professionals from around the globe to support their practice.

Workshop Programs

Since 2018, Red Hot Arts have delivered myriad professional and commercial development sessions and work experience opportunities. Workshops in technical, sound production, marketing, event management and business were delivered free of charge to local artists from industry professionals.
