In 2019, our first Artist in Residence was illustrator, creature designer and puppet maker Gabrielle Paananen. Gab spent her time at Onelot exploring networks, collective intelligence and what we can learn from patterns in nature. ‘I look forward to spending time observing the unique fungi, flora and fauna of the Mid North Coast,’ she said. https://www.gabriellepaananen.com/

2020 brought DENNI, multitalented singer-songwriter and proud pakana woman, to work on prototyping a thylacine head for the trans-Tasman First Nations collaboration Hide the Dog.
The Onelot Artists in Residence program is on hold – we’ve relocated to Hobart Tasmania to work with Terrapin Puppet Theatre. Bryony Anderson is leading a growing team of makers down south and encourages emerging artists and puppetmakers to get in touch with Terrapin for mentoring, training and work opportunities.
