Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship to Eric Avery
Violinist-composer and dancer, Ngiyampaa, Yuin, Bandjalang and Gumbangirr artist Eric Avery has received one of nine Sidney Myer Creative Fellowships, worth $160K over two years. First awarded in 2011, these Fellowships provide funding to individual Australian artists, arts managers and thought leaders in the humanities - specific outcomes for the Fellowships are not required. To be eligible, nominees must be in the first seven to fifteen years of their creative practice.
Among this year's Fellows is also Moogahlin Performing Arts Managing Director Ali Murphy-Oates, also a freelance producer, arts administrator, and consultant focusing on supporting First Peoples artists and sector. Ali's contribution during the first years of the Ngarra Burria program - of which Eric Avery is a participant - has been invaluable.
