UKARIA honours our First Nations by fostering a shared sense of respect for this land, and we acknowledge and pay our respects to the Peramangk, traditional custodians of the land on which the Cultural Centre stands.


'The UKARIA Residency program is truly idyllic. It combines the magic power of three phenomenal assets: a world-class concert hall, beautiful homestead and a picturesque location. This magic power forces its way right into the creative process and makes it one of Australia's great cultural treasures.'

– Eugene Ughetti, a recipient of the program in 2019

In Residence at UKARIA

Through its residency program, UKARIA provides opportunities for high calibre artists to think, develop, collaborate and create. The Australia Council and UKARIA invite invite applications for a residency at UKARIA in 2022. The successful applicant/s will be in residence at UKARIA for a maximum of ten days for the purpose of developing new creative projects led by musicians and composers. 

Priority will be given to the creation of new work, the transformation of existing work, and collaboration with other artists, including cross-artform and cross-genre collaboration.

Projects which are focused on preparing for performances and/or making recordings of existing works will be given a low priority. Projects which are focused on a single artist will be given a low priority. This opportunity is not offered as a retreat for a single artist to work on a score.
