The $15,000 Regional Fellowship offers two regional Victorian artists, writers or researchers the opportunity to create new work through repurposing, transforming or imaginatively responding to published or original source material from the Library’s extensive collections.
Applicants may be individuals or working in collaborative partnerships. They may include creatives 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.
Applicants must reside in regional Victoria, with their postcode reflecting their residence in one of the 48 local government areas classified as ‘regional’ by the Victorian Government.
Fellows receive a grant of $15,000, access to a desk space in a shared office for 12 months (January – December 2023), access to collections and staff expertise.
Regional Fellows can also receive support connecting to regional library services and accessing online collections from the Library. Projects that deliver outcomes in regional areas are highly desirable.
The Library gratefully acknowledges support provided by Regional Arts Victoria.
