We offer several Creative Fellowships annually to artists and scholars who propose thoughtful and innovative ways to use our collections.
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 up to $50,000 for up to 12 months' research and space in a private study within the Library that's accessible outside normal Library hours. A librarian specialising in the collection used for research will be assigned to help with accessing that collection.
Honorary fellowships may also be awarded. These fellows receive the same benefits as funded fellows, without the monetary grant.
