2009 UAP Mentorship Residency

July 27, 2009
I am so very excited to announce that I have been selected as the recipient for the 2009 Urban Art Projects (UAP) Mentorship Residency for emerging designers!

This is a $10,000 grant comprising $5,000 in cash and $5,000 in-kind support to develop my creative skills during a three-month residency at the Urban Art Projects studio in Northgate, Brisbane. UAP are particularly keen to support edgy, experimental work to facilitate a creative and dynamic Queensland industry and have come together with the support of Artisan as facilitator of the inaugural grant process.

UAP is an art-based design consultancy specialising in the delivery of large-scale site-specific artwork for architectural and landscape environments with offices in Los Angeles, Shanghai and affiliates in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

They have their own workshop and foundry specializing in metal works (bronze and aluminium), timber and mosaic. Led by Principals, Matthew and Daniel Tobin, UAP is comprised of designers, artists, draftsmen, metal workers and project managers. Together, they conspire with creative talent to give power to artistic vision both nationally and internationally.

I would like to thank UAP for the opportunity to work with them over the coming months, to Artisan for their support and so smoothly facilitating the grant process, information and presentation session and to my referees for continuing to support my practice as I extend my skills across new, yet relative areas of artistic practice.

Looking forward to commencing next week on what is to be an amazing three months, experimenting, exploring and extending myself…
