100 SCHOLARSHIPS TO BOOST YOUNG COUNTRY ARTISTIC TALENT

THE State Government has created a new scheme to develop young artistic talent through a country scholarship program, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall announced today.

Mr Marshall said the government had invested in 100 scholarship grants valued at $10,000 each, available for 18-to-25 year olds living in country NSW.

“Applications for 25 NSW Young Regional Artist Scholarships are now open until 11 June 2015,” Mr Marshall said.

“I urge our talented local artists and arts workers from any art form, including dance, design, digital arts, history, Aboriginal arts, literature, music, theatre, screen and the visual arts to apply for this terrific opportunity.

“The scholarships are available to fund activities including mentorships or internships, residencies, short-term courses and workshops, travel and the creation of new work.

“The Northern Tablelands has enthusiastic artistic talent and I want our youth developing the skills they need to reach their full potential.”

Mr Marshall said the new scholarships would help unlock the potential of young artists and arts workers living in country areas.

“There is fantastic artistic talent in the Northern Tablelands and the NSW Government is making it easier for youth in this region to connect to arts organisations and training opportunities to nurture their skills and future careers,” Mr Marshall said.

“The government is committed to investing in our next generation of artistic and cultural talent.”
