MUD:HUMUS (not Hummus!) is a performance-based artist-in-residence program that offers a unique professional development opportunity for South Australian artists working in emerging and experimental arts to obtain financial support, four weekly performances, mentorship, production of high-quality audio-visual materials and publication of the artist’s work in print and online to the MUD newsletter, website and mailing list.
Humus is a program designed for experimental and transdisciplinary, emerging and mid-career artists working with extended practices—those who actively push the boundaries of their respective disciplines—of music, sound art, composition, improvisation, visual art, multimedia and dance.
Like humus, the residency embraces diversity and complexity. It emboldens performers to cross the domains of research and performance and celebrates the novel discoveries that are made. The Humus residency provides a rich platform for artists to develop their practice, audience and career and thrives through the cross-pollination of concepts, culture and community within South Australia.

︎︎︎ $2000 for the month of September
︎︎︎ Five funded 90-minute Mentorship sessions with an established practitioner relevant to the artist’s discipline/field
