Create NSW announces new $30,000 SLNSW Aboriginal Creative Fellowship

A new fellowship with the State Library of New South Wales (SLNSW) is among four new fellowship programs worth up to $30,000 each being offered by Create NSW in partnership with arts organisations.

Create NSW has announced the establishment of fellowship programs in partnership with SLNSW, the Art Gallery of NSW, the Sydney Youth Orchestra, and Hayes Theatre Co.

In a statement, Create NSW said the NSW Aboriginal Creative Fellowship, in partnership with SLNSW, will ‘provide an opportunity for an Aboriginal artist, knowledge holder or creative practitioner to undertake creative research that will work towards a presentation outcome at the State Library of NSW’.

‘The successful applicant will be supported through $30,000 in funding to conduct research and engage with the State Library collections, delving into subjects and materials from the Library’s Indigenous Collections’.

Applications for the four Fellowships close on 1 March 2021. For more information see the Create NSW website.
