Writer in Residence, to assist a disability service in Broken Hill NSW

Country:

A disability service provider is looking for a writer / editor interested in assisting a client to write their autobiography. The service is asking a writer to assist in transcribing, editing, typing and guiding their client through the process. If you are interested in this work and interested in pursuing your own writing as Writer in Residence at the Broken Hill Art Exchange, we are looking for expressions of interest. This could be for a few initial sessions to start the process over a week, or longer-term sessions over several weeks. At this stage we are looking for a writer who is available and interested in an opportunity to live and work in Broken Hill NSW, short or long term.

The Broken Hill Art Exchange live - in residencies provide accommodation with private studios to all sectors and disciplines including the applied arts & crafts and visual, performance and literary artists.

Established in 2001 the Broken Hill Art Exchange is a not for profit, artist and volunteer run organisation that operates two residency facilities including Residencies @ The Grand and Residencies @ Duff Street. The residencies are suitable for short and long-term stays and situated in the city of Broken Hill Far West New South Wales Australia. The city has a population of approximately 18,000 people and easily accessible by rail, air and road. It is renowned for its architecture, clarity of light, astronomy, geology and mineral rainforest, environmental landmarks, social history, heritage and culture. Situated close to National Parks, the Murray Darling River and nearby Indigenous townships it is the ideal place to explore the region.

Broken Hill was named Australia’s Heritage City because of its significance to the nation in the fields of industrial relations, geology, water and land management and for the resilience of its population. The people of Broken Hill are passionate about the environment and it is home to many diverse artists and art galleries.

The Residencies @ The Grand are in the cultural hub of the city surrounded by art galleries, museums, libraries and cafes. Residents have a choice of living quarters & studios to suit their needs. Every resident has an assigned private work / study / studio area (3 x 6 metres) and utilise the kitchen and lounge, courtyard, conference rooms, art gallery, exhibition spaces and onsite information office.

The Residencies @ Duff Street occupying a converted 1950’s shopping centre adjoining a leafy recreational park in the southern district of the city of Broken Hill. Each residency is self-contained with kitchenette and private amenities. The studio workspaces are approximately 6 - 9m x 10m with large light filled windows. From here, it is a few minutes’ walk to Broken Hill’s famous Regeneration Bush Reserves and the quaint shopping district of Patton Village. 

Stay a little or stay a while! Our residencies are subsidised with fees ranging from $190 to $265 per week depending on the residency you require.
