Res Artis cannot be held responsible for any outcome of application or artist residency exchanges.

Complaints Policy

Although residency exchanges are private contracts between the artist and  host residency, it is very important to Res Artis that our vetted member listings are accurate, and that our member organisations are equipped to provide artists with positive residency experiences. As the peak organisation for the arts residencies field, Res Artis strives to maintain quality and transparency across our network and the broader field.

Artists and Residency Members are encouraged to resolve any disputes directly and amicably. Once that has been attempted first and there is no resolve, artists can use our conflict registration form to register their complaint and engage Res Artis to try and resolve a conflict resulting from a residency stay at one of our members.

Artists should be aware that Res Artis does not have the resources to investigate the financial or legal implications of complaints, or deal with he said/she said matters. As a vetted network, what we do is assess whether the member breached our shared set of Values they agree to adhere to on joining. If they have not breached these Values, they may remain a member. If they have, it may be grounds for a warning or dismissal.

Below is a summary of the procedural steps Res Artis uses to handle complaints against our members:

  1. Complaint submitted via online conflict registration form
  2. Complaint acknowledged by Res Artis office
  3. Complaint forwarded to volunteer Res Artis Board Member to investigate
  4. Board Member liaises with artist and residency member to investigate claims against Res Artis Values
  5. Board Member makes ruling with the following options: no case; coaching and training of member; a formal warning; or in extreme circumstances, instant expulsion from the Res Artis network and blocked access to our website.
  6. Case closed and no further correspondence is entered into by Res Artis.

The usual turn-around time for resolving complaints is one month, however please understand that Res Artis relies on the expertise of our volunteer Board, and some cases may take longer.
