The Arts NSW fellowship is worth $30,000 and open to artists working in all art forms including collections and cultural heritage, community arts and cultural development, dance, literature, multi art form, music (including opera and musical theatre), theatre (including circus and physical theatre), and visual arts (including craft and design).
Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said the NSW Government was committed to supporting Aboriginal artists to take up professional development opportunities.
“Aboriginal artists and arts groups in NSW contribute to the social and cultural richness of the nation as well as in local communities,” Mr Grant said.
“As home to the largest Aboriginal community in Australia, NSW Aboriginal artists are producing high-quality works that fuse traditional stories and culture with contemporary art forms and media.”
Applications close 11 August 2014. The fellowship winner will be announced later this year.
