Australia-Singapore Digital Residencies for Australians and Singaporeans

Application Deadline:  9 November 2021

The Australia Council for the Arts and the National Arts Council Singapore will jointly deliver the third iteration of a program of four digital residencies between Australia and Singapore, two for each country. 

This micro-grant is an opportunity to seed research, projects or exchanges and collaborative processes between artists and/or creative practitioners from the two countries, with the potential to spark new connections or deepen existing relationships which may result in co-creation of new work. 

Australian applicants will determine their own digital residency structure/format with the agreement of a proposed Singaporean independent/institutional partner. This opportunity is not tied to specific creative or cultural outputs. The focus of this digital residency is concept development, research, collaboration and exchange. The only requirement is to provide a final report upon completion that outlines the learnings you have experienced throughout the residency and any potential future opportunities you hope to explore. 

First Nations and Global diaspora-driven engagement is a priority of the International Engagement Strategy 2021-25 in amplifying our creative relationships in the Asia Pacific.  

A list of previous successful applicants and projects through this program can be found below.   


The Australia Council invites applications from the performing arts, visual arts, literature, community arts and cultural development, multi-art form and emerging and experimental practice.  

The lead applicant must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident with a proposed Singaporean counterpart. If you would like the Australia Council to broker relationships, please get in touch well before the application closing date. 

Applicants will have produced an independent body of work that demonstrates creative risk and experimentation in artistic practice and discourse. Applicants will also be able to demonstrate commitment to their local arts scene with strong relationships to their respective communities.
