Thanks to a grant from Regional NSW’s Stronger Country Communities Fund, the Liddell WORKS Creative Residencies program now has more happening!
The iconic Liddell Power Station is retiring in April 2023 and, in collaboration with AGL, Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre and others, we have been developing a program to mark the transformation.
Now with our new grant, there will be more residencies for artists, hands-on workshops, a deeper First Nations project, and a community event next year. The grant was announced on 21 February by Ben Franklin (Minister for Arts, Tourism, Aboriginal Affairs and Regional Youth) and local MLA David Layzell.
There is still time to apply for a residency, but you’ll have to be quick: applications close on Friday 24 February. We’re looking for diversity and breadth of engagement, energy, respect. You do not need to have taken a site tour to apply either.
Meanwhile planning with Liddell Power Station continues: we’ll keep you informed as we hammer out the details.

Arts Upper Hunter is very grateful to AGL for embracing and supporting this program and to Regional NSW for understanding its value to the local community. We believe some wonderful creative work will come of it.
