$30K Art and Technology Fellowship Opens

Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has called on local artists to apply for a new $30,000 Fellowship the NSW Government is offering in 2015.

Mr Ward said that the Art & Technology Fellowship is open from today to all NSW artists at any stage in their career.

“I’m thrilled the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is offering a new $30,000 Art & Technology Fellowship to support artists working with technology or digital art,” he said.

“I strongly encourage local artists across our region to apply for this wonderful opportunity to be introduced or expand the use of technology in their work.

“This new Fellowship supports a self-directed program of professional development that might include travel, mentorships and internships with arts, technology or science practitioners, residencies, short-term courses and workshops, research, the creation of new work, and the cost of technological or other equipment to assist in the production of new work.

“The winner of this Fellowship will also have the opportunity to develop a partnership with Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) that could include a residency at one of the Museum’s sites for up to six months, access to research and technical assistance,” Mr Ward said.

NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts, Troy Grant, said the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is committed to supporting artists to develop their professional skills.

“The Fellowship is about encouraging our talented artists to delve into new technologies and raise the profile of their work by reaching new audiences.

“Arts NSW’s partnership with MAAS includes an information session, held both online and at Powerhouse Museum, for artists looking to find out more about using new technologies in their work,” Mr Grant said.

Applications close on Wednesday 25th March 2015.
