National Library of Australia Creative Fellowships - close 1 July
Deadline: 1 July, 2018
Overview: The National Library of Australia provides creative artists with a unique and supportive environment in which to immerse themselves in the collections. The Fellowship enables artists to be inspired by, repurpose, transform or imaginatively respond to published sources, such as music, maps, rare books or ephemera, or original sources, such as pictures, manuscripts, oral histories and folklore recordings, in any way.
- 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 Eva Kollsman and Ray Mathew Trust, specifically aims to support writers wishing to develop their creative ideas by immersing themselves in an aspect of the collections.
- The National Folk Fellowship, offered in partnership with the National Folk Festival, supports folk musicians, singers, dancers, poets, performance artists, or collector-performers to develop a project based on the Library’s original folklore and related collections, with a performance at the following National Folk Festival.
