IN | artist run initiative x The Old Lock Up
IN | artist run initiative is a new multi-disciplinary arts collective based out of The Old Lock-Up, Maroochydore. IN | is a place for artists to explore experimental, collaborative, diverse approaches to making art, sharing art, and talking about art.
Exhibitions | Residencies | Events | Performances | Artist Talks | Critical Engagement
The collective offers project space + time for collaborations, mentoring, feedback, peer-critique, and a place to ‘talk shop’. IN | is a collective with more questions than answers- premise pushing through curiosity and driven by the Sunshine Coast’s increasing appetite for rigorous, agile contemporary arts dialogue.
IN | artist run initiative Directors: Ruby Donohoe, June Sartracom, and Sharna Barker.
IN | artist run initiative acknowledges the Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi people as Traditional Owners of the lands on which the space stands. We pay our deep respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.

CELL MATES RESIDENCY
EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
IN | artist run initiative is launching a new CELL MATES RESIDENCY in October 2021 and
are calling for expressions of interest from contemporary artists across all art forms.
IN | artist run initiative will pair two artists together to undertake a collaborative residency. This pairing will be driven by the potential of either two completely different artistic practices and/or practices that share common languages, conceptual anchors or processes. The residency is designed for artists looking to expand the boundaries of their current practice and those interested in cross-fertilisation.

They will be provided with a studio cell space, a featured artist profile on our website + social media showcasing artists’ practice and current work. Unfortunately, there is no artist fee or stipend associated with the residency. However, artists are able to take 100% of all profits from any ticketed workshops, activations, or showcases they choose to deliver as part of the residency. Events to be designed in negotiation with IN | artist run initiative.
WHAT ARTISTS OFFER: A public outcome with your fellow Cell Mates Residency artist. These could range from a workshop, exhibition, artist talk, screening, activation, listening party. Outcome to be agreed upon by the Cell Mates artists and IN | artist run initiative Co-Directors.
