Fellowship: Creative Residency Open Call. Melbourne, Monash University

The Department of Architecture at Monash Art Design & Architecture (MADA) announces an open call for leading architectural and urban thinkers, practitioners and teachers, to apply for a creative residency in Melbourne. Applicants at all career levels, and from all over Australia and the world, are encouraged to apply.
Research-led teaching interventions, innovative integrations of teaching and research, and research which aligns with and is complementary to our two active research labs (more information at https://www.monash.edu/mada/about-us/who-we-are/architecture) across the disciplines of Architecture and Urban Planning are invited.
During the residency, researchers are expected to share their work and thinking. We suggest that they undertake at least two of the following:

  • An independent research project (including practice-based research) which aligns with the work of at least one academic or research Laboratory in the Department
  • Masterclass or workshop for staff and/or students
  • Contribution to coursework teaching program – across any sub-discipline in architecture or urban planning
  • Delivery of a design-make studio – producing a 1:1 construction with students
  • Contribution to Masters and PhD programs and forums
  • Public event, e.g., lecture, debate, manifestation of work completed during the residency

Residents can be accommodated in the heart of the faculty on Monash’s Caulfield campus (adjacent to the Monash University Museum of Art) for periods ranging from two up to ten weeks. Successful applicants receive a stipend to cover travel, living expenses and research expenses, of up to AUD$5,000 for Australian applicants, and up to AUD$8,000 for international applicants.
Applications for residencies between July 2018 and July 2019 are open.
The application process proceeds via two stages. The first stage is an Expression of Interest. This should include:

  • project proposal: a brief account of what is proposed for the residency. This proposal can comprise text and images, and should include:
    • project title, outline, intended outcomes,
    • the relation of the project to the applicant’s past and future research and/or teaching practice
    • the relation of the project to the Department’s existing teaching, research, or work
  •      CV with contact information
  •      Citizenship and employment status (including whether this is a sabbatical)
  •      Preferred dates and proposed duration of residency
  •      Requirements for financial support and brief budget (up to AUD $5,000/8,000)

Expressions of Interest are due no later than 29 June 2018 (11pm AEST).
