AIR PROGRAM

Flipside has thrown open the doors of the Brisbane Circus Centre for circus artists and creators to train, play, experiment, test, and showcase new work.

Flipside’s residency program offers development, rehearsal, and presentation space.

In 2023 we invited independent artists and small/independent companies and collectives from across Australia to apply for AIR.

Applications for AIR are currently closed. If you’d like to be the first to know about our next round of applications click here to subscribe to our newsletter.

The Artist in Residency Program is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative.
