Jo Bannon Residency Call Out

Calling artists to take part in a two-week residency with Jo Bannon, UK.

As part of Access2Arts commitment to exploring the inter-relationships between arts practice and disability, we have invited Jo Bannon, to run a two-week residency.

This disability-led residency will create opportunity for a dynamic exchange and the examination ideas from new perspectives.

While in South Australia, Jo will also be presenting at the Australian Theatre Forum.

The Opportunity

Jo Bannon’s residency will examine desire, identity and penetration by unpicking the ways we look, hear and sense our immediate environment in order to rethink or make unfamiliar these intrinsic human behaviours.

The residency will run from Monday 2 October to Friday 13 October.  Attendance at the residency is free for selected participants.

Our partner Arts Access Australia (AAA), will be assisting an additional two artists based interstate to take part in the residency.


Full information on the EOI process, will be available soon. In the meantime, if you are an artist interested in the Jo Bannon residency please use the following form to register your interest.
