In its first year, this initiative supports aspiring visual artists as they transition from formal educational environments to developing an artistic practice in the ‘real world’.  This project provides access to space, resources and mentors delivered through structured weekly studio sessions. Through this 12 month professional development program the capacity of these artists will be developed so that they can ‘transition’ towards rewarding arts careers in North Queensland and beyond.

Transitions 2020 receives generous support the Regional Arts Development Fund.  The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Townsville City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
