Artists in residence

The Faculty of Education and Social Work's Artist-in-Residence program offers our stakeholders – students, staff, alumni and friends, honoraries, partner organisations – opportunities to engage with creative practitioners in the areas of writing, painting, screenwriting, script writing, illustration, and theatre production, and to relate this, where appropriate to their teaching practice and research.

Our Artists-in-Residence have been appointed from our existing networks, including alumni and faculty honoraries. Each one excels in their chosen field and have experience in communicating with their audiences:

The program has been highly successful with stakeholder engagement figures over the three residencies to date:

  • 120 attendees at creative writing workshops
  • 10 one-to-one consultations
  • 50 at a divisional seminar
  • 80 at a seminar
  • over 200 at two book events
  • 150 at a keynote address
  • 300 at two "in conversations"
