Applications open for Sidney Myer Creative Fellowships
First awarded in 2011, the Sidney Myer Creative Fellowships provide unrestricted grants of $160,000 over two years to individual artists, arts managers and thought leaders in the humanities. Specific outcomes for the Fellowships are not required.
The two criteria used to select Fellows are: outstanding talent and exceptional courage.
Nominations for the 2015 Sidney Myer Creative Fellowships close at 5:00pm AEST Sunday 31 May
Nominations are welcome for artists and arts managers across the entire spectrum of the visual, performing, interdisciplinary, new media, literary arts and music sector. Consideration is also given to arts managers and thought leaders in the humanities. Applicants to the program may not self-nominate and must include two referees who are not the nominator.
The Fellowships are intended for artists in their ‘early mid-career’ – to be eligible, nominees must be in the first seven to fifteen years of their creative practice. They are also intended for artists who will primarily be resident in Australia for the two years of their Fellowship.
