Broken Hill Art Exchange is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to building the creative industries of the city of Broken Hill and the Western region of New South Wales, Australia. Our grass roots organisation offers a whole-of-community approach to art and community cultural development.
The Art Exchange is a trans-disciplinary organisation facilitating the arts and other sectors. The residency provides private live-in studio apartments and self-contained rooms with access to communal spaces. Residents can pursue their practices, participate in community activities, conduct workshops, and create opportunities to share and further their skills, knowledge and expertise.
Applications to attend a residency are accepted throughout the year by completing the forms below. Please note that membership to the Broken Hill Art Exchange is a prerequisite.
Founded in 2001, the Broken Hill Art Exchange Inc. is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers. The aim of the organisation is to support the progress of art and artists. We facilitate workshops and projects by visiting and local participants to create partnerships and linkages between the arts and other sectors (e.g. health, environment, education, industry and business).
The organisation's concept of exchange operates on multiple levels including the exchange of skills, knowledge and resources between different art practices, industries and communities.
BHAE Inc. welcomes interest from educational institutions wishing to establish campuses and conduct student field trips to the city. These initiatives present the opportunity for innovative research and development raising awareness about Broken Hill as Australia's first Heritage City. Its social, environmental, economic and cultural impact on nation building as well as its relevance to the post-industrial world are key focal drives of BHAE's international residency program.
