Yulgilbar Travelling Fellowship applications closing soon

The Grafton Regional Gallery is calling on applicants for two travelling fellowships for artists funded by the Yulgilbar Foundation. 

These fellowships are an opportunity to individual artists or artist groups of the Clarence Valley who work across all mediums and subjects to broaden and enhance their professional development. Two Yulgilbar Travelling fellowships will awarded to Clarence Valley artists to provide assistance towards the cost of international or Australian travel to undertake a residency, internship or mentorship or to undertake a self-initiated artistic project, or research which may include establishing valuable contacts, researching current international practices, and engaging with international exhibition programs.

  • $5,000 will be provided for an Australian travelling fellowship
  • $8,000 will be provided for an international travelling fellowship

Applications close on November 18. Each application will be reviewed by a judging panel comprising Peter Wood, CEO Arts Northern Rivers, Niomi Sands, Gallery Director and Julie Hutchings, Artist and previous recipient of a Travelling Fellowship. The successful artists will be announced on November 29.

The Fellowships are to be completed by 30 June 2020. At the conclusion of each Fellowship the successful artists will be required to submit an artistic report on their experience and present a talk or slide night at the Grafton Regional Gallery to share stories from their experience.

The Yulgilbar Fellowship is a proud initiative of the Yulgilbar Foundation and the Grafton Regional Gallery.
