215 Magill Studios Residency

2 July 2020

The Helpmann Academy is thrilled to announce the recipients of our new studio residency at 215 Magill Studios.

University of South Australia graduate Georgia Scott Mills and Flinders University graduate Nerida Bell have been awarded six-month residencies at the newly developed artistic hub, beginning in July 2020.

Located within 5kms of the CBD, 215 Magill Studios is a new development with multiple studios and common facilities.

The dedicated studio space represents an opportunity for Georgia and Nerida to freely create and develop new work; providing a productive environment to expand their practice by experimenting with new materials and techniques or having the space to work on larger scale pieces.

Multidisciplinary artist Georgia Scott Mills is excited to take their art practice into a new community and environment.

“I am really excited about connecting with the creative community at 215 Magill, which I think will help me make interesting and unexpected developments. I am also looking forward to having the dedicated space to delve into research and experimentation, and possibly explore new tools and processes.”

Ceramic artist Nerida Bell is hoping to expand her practice into new and exciting directions.

“The residency will provide me with a much larger space allowing me the privilege and opportunity to experiment with upscaling my work, broadening my practice beyond functional ceramics to larger sculptural forms that will allow me to express new narratives within my contemporary art practice. Being immersed within a multi-disciplinary environment I also hope to explore other mediums such as wood and metal and incorporating them within my ceramic work.”
