2021 Fellowships program

Six National Regional Arts Fellowships Awarded


The National Regional Arts Fellowships is an investment in the development of artistic and creative practice for artists and practitioners working and living in regional, rural and remote Australia. The initiative is applicant-led, cross disciplinary and open to multiple art forms. It addresses the need for creative development, career pathways, and supports individuals in time and place to develop their work, skills and networks.

Regional Arts Australia is delighted to announce the 2021 Fellows whom will each pursue a unique project that considers their arts practice, geographic location, landscape and physical and cultural
environment.

Recipients were selected through a competitive grant round process and were assessed by an independent panel.
