GreenHouse: National Artist Residency Program

A HotHouse Theatre and AlburyCity program, in association with Murray Arts


HotHouse Theatre incubates, makes and presents 100% Australian theatre divergent in form and voice, that speaks to our region and the nation.

We invest in regional professional practice.

We collaborate with artists locally and nationally, to engage and inspire audiences.

Through shared experiences, we stimulate the imagination of the region.

We inspire insight into our humanity through creative interrogations that reflect the world around us, locally and nationally.

GreenHouse: National Artist Residency Program


Situated on Wiradjuri Country, HotHouse Theatre’s GreenHouse is a stunning five bedroom, two bathroom farmhouse and rehearsal studio located in the Wonga Wetlands, ten-minutes drive from the Albury CBD. In close proximity to the Wagirra Trail, the Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk and the Murray River, this beautifully appointed retreat provides a powerful place for reflection, immersion and creativity.

During 2020-21, with the support of the NSW Government and AlburyCity, the farmhouse (former home of the Month in the Country program) underwent significant renovation to improve accessibility, re-imagining new spaces for collaboration and creativity and providing a sanctuary for relaxation, connection and inspiration.


GreenHouse: National Artist Residency is an immersive, residential creative development program for live performance-makers from across Australia who are invested in:

  • Developing a New Work; and/or
  • Expanding their own artistic process/practice through specific creative interrogations; and/or
  • Radical experimentation in the development of new forms.

We want to entice creative risk takers to experiment, explore innovative interdisciplinary collaborations and strengthen the creative capacity of artists to develop exceptional new Australian stories for the stage, and/or make bold new contributions to their art form, inspired by our region and gifted to the nation.


Artists/Creative teams live together onsite and work through the day in the attached rehearsal space.  The large rehearsal space has a sprung floor and reverse-cycle air conditioning.

  • Each residency is for a period of up to two weeks
  • There are funded, co-funded and unfunded residencies available.


GreenHouse: National Artist Residency program is open to individuals or groups with an independent arts practice, proposing ideas primarily in the broad definition of theatre.

We welcome applications from Independent artists across all disciplines and forms.

We specifically encourage applications from:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists
  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Artists
  • Artists who identify as LGBTQIA+
  • Artists living with Disability

Selected residents are required to design up to one x 90-minute community workshop or community engagement offering whilst in residence.

The property is approximately 6 km out of town so it is essential that at least one member of the group is over 26 and has a driver’s licence. Access to ground transport vehicle may be negotiated, pending availability.
