BATHURST Memorial Entertainment Center (BMEC) and Performing Lines are inviting applications from mid-west performing arts practitioners for the inaugural BARN (Bathurst Arts Residency NSW) 2022. It will be held at St Joseph’s Heritage and Conference Center in Perthville from April 29-1 May as part of Local Giants, a joint regional investment program of Performing Lines, Regional Arts Australia and PAC Australia. This three-day, two-night event will provide a creative and supportive environment to test ideas, consider new collaborations, and explore the possibilities of crossover art forms. This is an opportunity for writers, choreographers, dancers, directors, actors, theater makers and creators to meet and explore. The application is simple and asks for 250 words about your idea – it will take around 20 minutes to complete. Expressions of interest will be reviewed by a curatorial committee who will take into consideration the caliber of the artist, the quality of the idea and a range of other balancing issues, including art forms, geography and experience, to ensure the right mix of people for a busy weekend.
