NEW REGIONAL ARTIST DEVELOPMENT FELLOWSHIPS OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS
Outstanding regional artists and arts workers can apply for up to $30,000 to develop their professional skills and gain experience in the national and international arts landscape. In October last year funding for five Regional Artist Development Fellowships was announced as part of the Australian Government’s commitment to supporting professional regional artists and promoting a vibrant, creative life in Australia’s regions. These fellowships will provide artists and arts workers with new and valuable experiences that not only support their career but also deliver long-term benefits to the cultural life of their communities.
The five fellowships are:
- The International creative development fellowship ($30,000), which is open to regional artists to support a placement or experience outside Australia to develop creative practice.
- The Indigenous creative development fellowship ($20,000), which is open to Indigenous regional artists to support a placement or experience outside their region (including international, metropolitan or other regions) to develop creative practice.
- The Young artist creative development fellowship ($15,000), which is available for regional artists aged between 18 and 26 to support a placement or experience outside their region (including international, metropolitan or other regions) to develop creative practice or support their career path.
- The Institutional fellowship and Indigenous institutional fellowship ($30,000 each) will each support a placement for a regional artist or arts worker at an Australian arts institution. The placement could include formal training, mentoring with institutional leaders or a work placement.
Applications close at midnight on Friday 17 April.
