Opportunity: Prelude Composer Residencies in NSW, WA and SA
Applications for Prelude composer residencies in three states are open and close on 4 September 2017.
Composers and songwriters from any genre and stage of their career are invited to apply. The three successful applicants will be offered long-term residence in one of three heritage-listed homes located in Adelaide (Beaumont Cottage, for 9 months), Perth (Gallop House, for 12 months) or Sydney (Peggy Glanville-Hicks House, for 12 months), plus a generous stipend. The stipend for the 2018 residencies is $20,000 for twelve months, scaled proportionally for shorter residencies. Applications will be assessed by industry peers, and applicants will be notified in mid-October.
For information about the three houses, details about the
application process and to apply,

Prelude is a collaboration between Bundanon Trust, Peggy Glanville-Hicks Composers Trust, the National Trust of Western Australia, the National Trust of South Australia, the National Trusts of Australia, APRA, the Helpmann Academy, Arts SA and the Australian Government through Catalyst and the Australia Council. The program builds on the established residency at Peggy Glanville-Hicks' home in Paddington, Sydney and is managed by Bundanon Trust.
