National Library of Australia Creative Fellowships

The National Library offers three Fellowships to support practising writers and artists to develop new work creatively using or inspired by the Library’s collections. Applications close Friday 28 July.

Deadline for applications: Friday 28 July

Overview: The National Library offers three Fellowships to support practising writers and artists to develop new work creatively using or inspired by the Library’s collections.

The Library 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 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.
