Arena is offering three residencies to young writers and/or artists who either live, work or study in the city of Yarra. The residency program will be based out of the Arena project space on Kerr St in Fitzroy, and will offer young people an opportunity to develop and publish their work.

Residents will develop a piece of writing or body of work that explores social, cultural, or political phenomena from a critical perspective. Each resident will be assigned a mentor with experience in the area of their work and will have full access to resources in the Arena library.

Residency details:

  • 12 week access to the Arena Project Space (27th March – 21st May)
  • Desk/internet/printing facilities

The residency program will culminate in the publication of an article or body of work of each resident in Arena’s quarterly magazine. Arena will also hold a public event at the end of the program where each resident will be offered the opportunity to present their work to a broader audience.
