State Library Vic Creative Fellowships

Applications close on Sunday 17 April 2016

The Library’s Creative Fellowship program provides artists and scholars with a unique and supportive environment in which to immerse themselves in our collections. We invite recipients to be inspired by, repurpose, transform or imaginatively respond to published or original sources, such as manuscripts, maps, music, newspapers, oral histories and rare printed material, in any way they choose.

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, space in a shared office that is accessible outside normal Library hours, and special access to collections and staff expertise
