In partnership with 4000 Studios, we are excited to introduce 4000 Talents, an opportunity that provides free access to studios, mentoring and the opportunity to work alongside some of Australia’s leading music creators!

The program offers two creatives a one-month residency each at the Studio 4000 premises, with:

  • 1-month residency at a fully-equipped studio at 4000 Studios
  • Mentoring with 4000 Studios artist residents
  • Professional assets including photo and video documentation of your residency

4000 Talents is specifically looking for role models that represent the diverse cultures that make up our Australian music community. For example, but not limited to, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, people with disabilities, people with culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds that have been underrepresented, and people who identify with the LGBTIQAP+ community.

4000 Studios is a Meanjin-based music studio complex that launched in March 2022 that aims to be Brisbane’s breeding ground for new talent, lay a foundation for sustainable careers, and boost diversity in music.

Applications open 4 July, 9:00AM AEST and close 31 July 11:59PM AEST.

Applications are open Australia-wide. Please note, travel and accommodation costs are the responsibility of the successful applicants.

Recipients will be determined by Studio 4000's Decision Board, with the successful applicants announced on 19 August. The first artist will move in on 12 September kickin’ off the first “4000 Talents” artist residency!
