The Art Exchange a Not-for-Profit Venture
Broken Hill Art Exchange is dedicated to building the creative industries of the city of Broken Hill and the Far West region of New South Wales, Australia. Our grass roots organisation offers a whole-of-community approach to art and community cultural development.
The Broken Hill Art Exchange (BHAE)
Founded in 2001, 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 artists 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 artists, galleries and educational institutions wishing to experience Broken Hill for their next field trip or excursion.
The Art Exchange is a trans-disciplinary organisation facilitating the arts and other sectors engaging artistic practices. The residency provides private live-in studio apartments and self-contained rooms with access to studio workspaces. Residents can pursue their practices with uninterrupted time, or contribute to community activities by conducting workshops and exhibiting artworks as part of the organisations Desert Equinox yearly program.
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.
Broken Hill was named as Australia's Heritage city in 2015 and its environments present the opportunity for innovative research and artistic development. BHAE's international residencies offer the best of both worlds. We have Residencies @ The Grand, situated in the culture hub of the city's main street for artists seeking a vibrant community atmosphere or if the serenity of the outback is the break your needing, apply for our Residencies @ Duff Street near Patton St Village.
