Creative Fellowships

This year the Library is offering two $15,000 Creative Fellowships, to provide artists and scholars with a unique and supportive environment in which to explore our collections. We invite recipients to be inspired by, repurpose, transform or imaginatively respond to published or original sources, including manuscripts, maps, music, newspapers, oral histories and rare printed material, in any way they choose.

Applications are welcome from individuals or collaborative partnerships practising in any art form – visual arts, new media, dance, musical performance or composition – and from writers and scholars in any discipline or subject.

Fellows receive a grant of $15,000, access to a desk space in a shared office for 12 months (January–December 2022), access to collections and staff expertise.
