Fortitude Valley, QL,
Artworkers, the peak body for the visual arts, design and craft industries in Queensland, is now inviting applications for the 2006 Siganto Travel Scholarship. The biennial bursary offers emerging visual arts, craft and design practitioners the opportunity to expand their professional development through travel. Funds up to the value of $7000 are available for travel that will support an individual's career development.
Examples of projects funded by the Scholarship include (but are not limited to) attendance at international and interstate conferences, residencies and masterclasses, and international research projects used to access resources unavailable in Australia. Rub shoulders with the art glitterati at the Venice Biennale, undertake a photography residency in Los Angeles, or learn about contemporary indigenous painting in central Australia.
Applications close 5pm 7 August 2006. To download an application form, visit www.artworkers.org. Please note all applicants must be current members of Artworkers. For further information on membership or the 2006 Siganto Travel Scholarship, contact Artworkers on 07 3215 0850 (1300 780 291 outside Brisbane) or firstname.lastname@example.org The Scholarship is made possible by the generous support of the Siganto family, and is assessed by an independent panel of industry professionals.
