2019 Yulgilbar Travelling Fellowship
The Grafton Regional Gallery is offering an opportunity to individual artists or artist groups of the Clarence Valley who work across all mediums and subjects to apply for Yulgilbar Travelling Fellowships to broaden and enhance their professional development.
Applications are now open for an Australian Travelling Fellowship of $5,000 and an International Travelling Fellowship of $8,000 (NB: amounts are exclusive of GST) and entries close 18 November 2019.
Each application will be reviewed by a judging panel comprising Peter Wood, CEO Arts Northern Rivers, Niomi Sands, Gallery Director and Julie Hutchings, Artist and previous recipient of a Travelling Fellowship and the successful artists will be announced on 29 November 2019.
The Fellowships will provide assistance towards the cost of international or Australian travel to undertake a residency, internship or mentorship (a planned program with a professional curator), or to undertake a self-initiated artistic project, or research which may include establishing valuable contacts, researching current international practices, and engaging with international exhibition programs.
The Fellowships are to be completed by 30 June 2020. At the conclusion of each Fellowship the successful artists will be required to submit an artistic report on their experience and present a talk or slide night at the Grafton Regional Gallery to share stories from their experience.
The Yulgilbar Fellowship is a proud initiative of the Yulgilbar Foundation.
