06 Mar Opportunity: First Nations Writing Fellowship at the JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice
Pursuant to section 65 of the South Australian Equal Opportunity Act 1984 and the University of Adelaide’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy, applications are invited from Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islander people only.
The JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice First Nations Fellowships support the production of new work by First Nations artists, to be awarded to creative writers/storytellers and musicians, beginning with a writer in 2023. The Fellowship comprises $10,000 for creative development of a project, and office space at the Centre.
Collaborations and dialogue between the Fellow and JMCCCP members will be encouraged, and the successful applicant will be invited to give a masterclass to students in English and Creative Writing. The Fellow will also be free to engage with our neighbours in the North Terrace Cultural Precinct, by exploring or responding to the collections of the South Australian Museum, or by participating in the programs of the Art Gallery of South Australia, particularly those scheduled around Tarnanthi, Reconciliation week and NAIDOC week.
If you have the talent, we’ll give you the opportunity. Together let’s make history.
Please submit the following as part of your application:
- A description of your proposed project
- A description of how this opportunity might support you at this point of your career
- A brief budget of how fellowship funds will be spent
