Carclew's career development Fellowship Program allows for an artist or arts worker aged 26 years or under, of any background and experience, to pitch a professional development proposal. Applicants can propose a program of study or professional development and request financial support ranging from $3,000 - $12,000.

Fellowships can be to study at an international summer school, to participate in masterclasses, residencies, internships or mentorships, or to immerse oneself in a different and challenging environment to be exposed to innovation and cutting edge ideas.

Fellowships recognise the breadth of skills in the arts and creative industries. They are open to applicants practicing in all creative mediums, as well as technical, administration and production areas of the arts, all of which make a vital contribution to a complex industry.

Key Dates

Fellowship applications for professional development opportunities to be pursued in 2018 are now open and close at 11:59pm (ACST) 15 July 2017.
