Australia Council Fellowships to Neal, Page, Priest, Ambarchi
Composers Kate Neal and Rosalind Page, sound artists Gail Priest and Oren Ambarchi, and interdisciplinary artist Marco Fusinato are among the recipients of two-year fellowships from the Australia Council for the Arts. The sought-after fellowships, each worth $100,000 over two years, are awarded to outstanding, established artists for creative activity and professional development. There are 12 recipients this year, representing seven different art forms, from visual arts to dance, theatre, community arts and cultural development, as well as music.
Fellowships are only granted once in an artist's lifetime, and applications are assessed 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.
