Adriane Strampp has been invited to join Taronga Zoo‘s Artists in Residence program in 2011.
Overlooking Sydney Harbour, Taronga Zoo began the Artists in Residence program in 2009. Artists begin the residency with an overnight stay at the Zoo’s Roar and Snore campsite, meeting the keepers and their charges, exploring the Zoo after dark, sleeping in luxury tents and feeding the animals in the morning. Artists are provided with a special pass to visit and work as much as they wish over a three-month period, including access before opening hours.
Artists participating donate a work created during the residency to help raise funds for the Taronga Foundation’s ongoing conservation endeavours.
