New $30,000 Fellowship for Aboriginal creatives in NSW

The State Library of NSW is inviting Aboriginal artists, knowledge holders or creative practitioners to apply now for its new $30,000 Aboriginal Creative Fellowship.

In partnership with Create NSW, the Aboriginal Creative Fellowship is part of a series of creative programs recently announced by the NSW Government.

The Fellowship aims to support an artist working in the NSW Aboriginal and First Nations context that can make an outstanding contribution to the artistic and historical landscape.

State Librarian John Vallance said: “The Library has benefitted greatly in recent years from having First Nation artists work with its collections, and in return we are delighted to have the chance to support them. I’m looking forward to seeing where this exciting new opportunity leads. We are urging all eligible people to apply for this new Fellowship. “

Applications for the Fellowship close at 5 pm AEDST on Monday 1 March 2021.
