In 2021, OSCA began its inaugural residency program at our Post Office Projects studio.  This 3 – 6month residency program supports OSCA’s focus on the development of local artists interested in working in public spaces.


Emerging visual artist, Miriam Sims has undertaken a 6 month period of research into thee unused and abandoned heritage buildings around Port Adelaide and other indications of the history of trade and transaction in the area. She aims to produce several text-based maps and event scores as public engagement strategies for future works.

A work in progress / exhibition is scheduled for the 14 August in the Post Office Projects Gallery + Studios project space as part of the 2022 SALA events.
