The 2023 State Library Victoria Fellowships Program
State Library Victoria
The 2023 State Library Victoria Fellowships Program is a unique opportunity for artists, writers, and scholars to immerse themselves in the Library's extensive collections and bring them to life in new and innovative ways.
There are 15 fellowships available, offering support through financial grants, shared office space in the Library’s magnificent dome annulus or through studio residencies, and direct access to Library collections and expert staff.
We are looking for submissions that repurpose, transform or imaginatively respond to the Library’s collections. Previous fellowship projects have included a memoir retracing the journey by Chinese-Australian migrants to the goldfields in the 1800s, a film about the influence of Irish Gaelic dance in Victoria, and the continued development of the Woiwurrung language database. Possible formats are endless, from developing a podcast, documentary or original score to creating a performance or historical essay.
Let the boundless opportunities within the collections inspire your ideas to take flight!
Applications close Friday 16 September.
