Application Deadline: midnight 10 October 2018 AEDT.

Are you an experienced artist working in traditional art, screen, print or performance media? Are you fascinated by how virtual reality could dramatically enhance your creative vision or creative projects?

Start VR is looking for new, emerging and established artists to become the next virtual reality artist in residence.

In March 2018, Start VR launched the Australian VR Artist Residency Program, which invites two leading practitioners from traditional screen media and creative industries to collaborate on new, interactive cinematic VR projects.

The Australian VR Artist Residency Program is an innovative program which provides creative artists and leading practitioners of media production the chance to develop a functional virtual reality project. Successful applicants will be invited to work with Start VR’s team of industry leading producers, developers, artists, creative and interaction specialists.

At the end of the six-month program, residents will have created a production-ready virtual reality prototype and supporting documentation.

The program will actively build residents’ skills, competencies and experience. It will culminate in a production-ready VR property for which Start VR will seek production funding and distribution opportunities.


  • The residency is open to creatives, aged 18 years and over, who are Australian citizens and have had a least two published, publicly performed or recognised credits for their work.

The Australian VR Artist Residency Program is funded with assistance from the Screen Australia Enterprise Ideas Program.

Start VR is looking to find an artist who wants to combine their art form with the new immersive medium of VR to create something amazing, compelling and marketable.
