About the Yulgilbar Fellowship
The Yulgilbar Fellowship is a funding opportunity for artists or artist groups to travel and develop their professional artistic practice. The funds, allocated as part of the Fellowship, allow the successful artist to develop professionally through making specialised connections, attending biennales, conferences and arts festivals as well as visiting galleries and museums.
The Fellowship has been developed to give Clarence Valley artists the opportunity to broaden and strengthen their practice by reaching places not otherwise possible.
The amount available for the Fellowship is $11,000 including GST. This money is available for travel, accommodation, artist stipend, and more. The travel and associated projects as part of the Yulgilbar Fellowship are to be completed by 30 June 2018.
