LOCAL ARTISTS INVITED TO APPLY FOR STATE GOVERNMENT FELLOWSHIPS

Thursday, 7 July 2016

ARTISTS across the Northern Tablelands are being invited to apply for three NSW Government fellowships dedicated to support country-based artists.

Local State MP Adam Marshall said three $50,000 Regional Arts Fellowships would offer regional artists and arts and cultural workers a great opportunity to broaden their talent and skills.

“The Northern Tablelands is home to some of the State’s most talented artists and through these fellowships they will be able to further develop their skills and career,” he said.

“The government is proud to offer these fellowships to artists at any stage of their careers, to help them continue contributing to local communities and providing audiences with high-quality arts and cultural experiences.

“I’m urging our vibrant arts community to take a good look at these fellowships and make an application.”

Mr Marshall said the fellowships were a great opportunity for local artists to further develop their careers.

“I’m committed to supporting initiatives in the bush to develop thriving local arts scenes and ensure people can experience cultural activities no matter where they live,” he said.

“Artists and arts and culture workers based here play a pivotal role in developing local cultural communities and I’m pleased to see the government support them through the Regional Arts Fellowship program.”

2016 Regional Arts Fellowship applications close on Tuesday, 2 August.
