We offer several Creative Fellowships annually to artists and scholars who propose thoughtful and innovative ways to use our collections. In 2014 six Creative Fellowships are available.
Applicants may be individuals or be working in collaborative partnerships. They may include artists practising in any art form – such as the visual arts, new media, dance, musical performance or composition – and writers and scholars in any discipline or subject.
Fellows receive a grant of $12,500 for three months' research and a desk in a private study within the Library that can be accessed outside normal Library hours. A librarian with specialist knowledge of the collection/s being researched will be assigned to help with accessing that collection.
Honorary fellowships may also be awarded. These fellows receive the same benefits as funded fellows, without the monetary grant.
Recipients of our 2014–15 Creative Fellowships were announced in July 2014.
