Do you know an inspired and skilled creative artist or writer who can make imaginative use of the National Library of Australia’s collection to create a new artistic or literary work (or body of work)?
We are delighted to announce that applications are now open for the2019 Creative Arts Fellowships which support four weeks of intensive research using the Library’s extraordinary 10 million item collection.
Creative Arts Fellowships are awarded in two categories:
· The Friends of the National Library of Australia Creative Arts Fellowship is open to creative practitioners and artists, working professionally in any art form, to create new artistic work that is inspired by or using particular collections. Artists may be working in such fields as music, dance, theatre, visual arts, emerging, hybrid and experimental art forms.
· The National Library of Australia Creative Arts Fellowship for Australian Writing, supported by the Ray Mathew and Eva Kollsman Trust, supports writers wishing to develop their creative ideas by immersing themselves in an aspect of the collections. Writing can be in any format, genre or media, such as novel or poem, short story or graphic novel, for the stage, film or other audience.
The closing date for applications is 1 July 2018. Applications are welcomed from established or emerging artists and writers working in any art form or writing genre.
