Boorhaman Residency Program

The Boorhaman Residency Program was co-conceived and developed by artists Kate Hill and Eugene Howard. This rural residency program was designed to transform the dis-used Boorhaman Primary School in Victoria's NE, into a relevant and vibrant creative centre for diverse practices and trans-disciplinary collaboration. This residency model has been trialled through a pilot program in the Spring of 2017, with participating artists Dylan Martorell and Chaco Kato.

We weregenerously supported by the Victorian Government through the Department of Education and Training, through the provision of a licence agreement granting Residency Projects access to the dis-used Boorhaman Primary School, Creative Victoria through VicArts grants, the Australia Council for the Arts and the Besen Family Foundation, through Creative Partnerships Australia's Cultural Fund.
