    The Residency Program is based in Haefligers Cottage and Murrays Cottage at Hill End.

    Hill End is a small former gold mining town in New South Wales, Australia, situated in an upland valley 84km north west of Bathurst and 35km west of Sofala. The village is not accessible via public transport and it is just over 4 hours drive from the Sydney CBD.

  • WHY


    The Hill End Artists in Residence Program began as a partnership between Bathurst Regional Council and curator Gavin Wilson in 1995. Since then the program has grown into one of Australia's most sought after residencies. The Residency Program allows contemporary Australian and international artists the chance to experience and respond to the historically charged landscape of Hill End.

  • WHEN


    Visual artists, writers/curators, musicians, new media/film/video artists are invited to apply for the 2019 season of residencies at Hill End.

    Successful applicants spend 4 weeks living and working in either Haefligers Cottage or Murrays Cottage during the period March 2019 to March 2020.

    2019 applications close on Wednesday 31 October 2018 at 5pm.
