Welcome to the Territory Wildlife Park Artists in the Park Program

Do you want to be a writer in residence and recite poetry at a billabong or practice your
painting en plein air, or create an ephemeral installation about climate change? If you are
interested in creating work in the Territory Wildlife Park, we are inviting you to explore the
possibilities and come and work in the Park to make it happen!

In 2012, the Territory Wildlife Park will continue the Artists in the Park program. The program
is designed to enhance community engagement with the Territory Wildlife Park by bringing
together artists who work in a range of art practices to develop new work dedicated to the
experience and expression of the Territory Wildlife Park.

Artists in the Park is a professional development opportunity for artists at any stage of their
career. The program provides dedicated time and space for an artist to make a new body of

Proposals from individuals, groups and collaborations between artists will be accepted. Artists
in the Park will have a number of artists participating in the residencies to encourage a
supportive environment for the artists. Indigenous artists, young and emerging artists are
encouraged to apply.

The Goals of Artists in the Park are to:
   Support the creation of new work that is inspired by or linked to the environments
    represented at the TWP. This includes Woodlands, Monsoon Forest and Wetlands
    including Paperbark.

   Create environmental awareness promoting to users of the park a greater understanding
    of the relationships between plants, animals and the landscapes and processes that
    shape and affect them.

The intention of Artists in the Park is to develop connections between:

       TWP and the arts community,

       The environs represented at the TWP and visitors through art, design and creative

       TWP and the local community through providing a stimulating program of artists.

       Visitors to TWP and the artists
