Regional Arts Australia advises that the closing date for these five Fellowships is fast approaching.
Regional Arts Fund Manager Paul Jenkins advises that there has been strong interest in all five categories from around the country.
“Both artists and artsworkers have expressed interest in applying for one of the Fellowships. While there are already some great ideas under development, its not too late to consider putting in an application for that once in a lifetime development experience’ Said Mr Jenkins.
These Fellowships provide the opportunity for an artist or art worker to create new works, develop partnerships and collaborations with other arts professionals and cultural organisations.
“The guidelines are very broad in the interests of offering opportunities for creative individuals from all artforms and regions’ Added Mr Jenkins.
The five categories of fellowship on offer 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 between 18 and 26 years 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.
