NLA launches new creative arts fellowship

The National Library of Australia (NLA) has launched a new fellowship for ‘professional practicing artists’.

The Friends of the NLA Creative Arts Fellowship is open to Australian citizens or permanent residents practising in any art form, including ‘writing, music, dance, theatre, visual arts, emerging, hybrid and experimental art forms’. It ‘aims to assist professional artists to develop new artistic work creatively using or inspired by the Library’s rich and varied collections’.

The fellowship carries a $10,000 grant, which can be used for travel and accommodation or project expenses. A residency of at least one month must be undertaken at the library before 30 June 2015.

Applications are now open and are due by 9 November 2014. For more information, visit the NLA website here.
