Scholarship for arts leaders

Scholarship for arts leaders

JUNE 2015 |

FEDERAL LYONS MP Eric Hutchinson invites aspiring regional and rural arts leaders to apply for a new scholarship.

“The Australia Council will provide $150,000 over the next three years for three high-performing regional arts leaders to take part in the Australian Rural Leadership Program,” Mr Hutchinson said.

Arts Minister George Brandis said that the scholarships had been developed to address additional barriers that regional arts leaders face including fewer opportunities than their metropolitan colleagues to participate in arts sector initiatives.

“Running over 15 months, it consists of five residential programs and covers topics such as leadership, advocacy, media, international relations and community programs.

“Participants will also have the opportunity to attend a two week study tour to South East Asia.”

Applications close on 31st August 2015. Visit www. australiacouncil.gov.au
