Kudos Offsite

Popup exhibitions and public projects

Kudos Offsite: Offsite Art Projects allows you the opportunity to realise a large-scale artwork. Think  pop-up installations, events and happenings, projects in historic sites, collaborations with other institutions, galleries, or local businesses. 

The Kudos Offsite program consists of approximately six large-scale art projects throughout the year, occurring every two months between February and December. Kudos Offsite accepts projects including, but not limited to artwork, events, and writing. 

What’s Involved? 

Kudos will offer mentoring, financial aid where feasible, install support, and marketing and promotion for your project. 

Your participation in Kudos Offsite is split into two categories: 

  • 5-6 week  project development period, and 

  • a 2-3 week release period (when the offsite project is due to take place or be published.) 


During the development of your work, you will create and develop your project! Our Kudos team will mentor you through a series of consultations, allowing you to develop and refine your work. During this time, we expect you to dedicate at least 8 hours per week to working on your project. 

During the release period, you will install your off-site project over a period of two days (a minimum of 14 hours total). Specific installation activities will be dependent on your project. 

Overall, you will complete a minimum of 54 AHEGS hours. 

Timeline and Application Deadlines 

The Kudos Offsite: Offsite Art Projects program runs from February 1 to 10 December 2021. 

The 6 major projects will be selected from one open call out to commence in early 2021.
