Australia Council invests in leading artists

Some of Australia’s most accomplished artists working in various art forms have been recognized with prestigious Australia Council Fellowships. The highly sought after fellowships, worth $100,000 over two years, are awarded to outstanding, established artists for creative activity and professional development.  

This year they have been awarded to 12 artists in seven art form areas. Find full list and bios of selected artists here.

Australia Council Chief Executive Officer Tony Grybowski congratulated the recipients of this year’s fellowships and paid tribute to the outstanding body of work each had already produced in their respective art forms.

“Fellowships have always been central to the Council’s grants program and for many artists they are life-changing to their career,” Mr Grybowski said.

“Fellowships are only granted once in an artists’ lifetime to those who can demonstrate outstanding achievement on the national and international stage, so the calibre of these recipients is very impressive. 

“One of the goals in the Council’s new Strategic Plan - Australia is known for its great art and artists - aims to build the capacity of artists to make excellent work and foster experimentation and risk-taking in all art forms.

“Fellowships realise this goal by supporting artists to develop their arts practice, experiment, research and create new ways to present their works and further their artistic ambitions and career.

“They play an important role in providing artists with the time and financial security needed to focus on their work and the freedom to reflect, innovate, experiment and collaborate.”

Fellowship applications are assessed and awarded by peers in the relevant art form areas.

Under the Australia Council’s new grants model, which begins in January, Fellowships will be offered once a year with a June closing date.

Past Fellowship recipients include Gary Lang, Alana Valentine, Archie Roach, Tim Daly, Judith Wright and Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu.

Jennifer's Fellowship will focus on interrogation of stories, values and best practice in CACD, to identify new narrative and media strategies.
