The Sharehouse residency program doubles the number of young artists making Carclew House their creative home for the coming 12 months. During 2021 eight practitioners will be provided with the time, space and support to explore and develop their creative practice, while being assisted by Carclew to develop their professional capacities.

The successful residents announced today, including writers, filmmakers, artists, curators and dancers, will be welcomed into Carclew House’s redefined fit-for-purpose creative spaces:

Messy Spaces: Two exclusive-use studios in the old stables.

Multi-disciplinary artist George Gilles, whose art draws on her nomadic lifestyle and experiences to explore the personal relationship between self and ‘home’.

Visual artist Mali Allen-Place, an Arabana and Kokatha woman originally from Port Augusta, explores society’s definition of equality and works towards using her artistic platform to promote positivity, happiness and kindness.

Quiet Space: The Morning Room, a ground floor shared space.

Actor and self-taught award-winning playwright Jamila Main, whose most recent work includes a showing of their autobiographical, durational theatre work How Long Can This Last? at Vitalstatistix for Adhocracy 2020.
