The State Collection will be transformed by Victorian writers, scholars and creatives undertaking a range of exciting projects through the 2023 Fellowships program.
Among these is a performance lecture shining a light on the ethics of magical practice; a docu-series on the stories of local survivors of Malaya in WW2; photographic works based on Indigenous and non-Indigenous flora; a study of gender and power in Ludovico Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso; a series of multimedia stories about the people of regional town Moe; and a look into how human contact has changed the six iconic peaks in southern Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
Working out of offices in the Library’s magnificent dome annulus, the 2023 fellows will reimagine our collections through photography, musical performance, video animation, sculpture and more – enriching Victorians’ understanding of who we are, where we’ve been and where we’re going.
